Brooks Salzwedel’s work focuses on natural and unnatural landscapes disconnected from their usual surroundings or places in time. Using a self-created process involving materials such as graphite, mylar and resin, tape, colored pencil, and ink, his work evokes feelings of desolation through haunted, dreamlike visions of otherworldly terrains. Ancient trees, decaying flora, and icy mountains obscure long forgotten places and objects, at once familiar and unrecognizable, creating a space for rumination that challenges the relationship to their meaning.

Salzwedel received his B.F.A. from the Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, in 2004. Salzwedel graduated with honors and distinction quickly landing a solo show with NewSpace Gallery, Los Angeles. The same year Salzwedel also procured a high-end line of handmade belt buckles in the same process winning him the Best Belt Designer in Los Angeles by Los Angeles Magazine as well as one of LA’s top five accessories designers by Los Angeles Times Magazine West.

He has been chosen as the Artist-in-Residence of the most visited National Forest in the U.S., White River National Forest, Summer 2017. In 2015, Salzwedel was Denali National Park’s visual Artist-in-Residence. He also won Los Angeles Metro poster project for 2016 in which his work is displayed among many buses, trains and metro stations around Los Angeles, CA. His work has been displayed at renowned museums worldwide, including the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2010); MOCA, Los Angeles (2005); Honolulu Museum of Art, HI (2017), and the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego, CA (2009)

Brooks’ studio is currently in Los Angeles, CA.
