These works represent an ongoing series of wall sculptures that focus on the manipulation of chisel marks to replicate a texture which when coupled with gold leaf gives a sense of sunlight reflecting on the surface of water. The use of stain in varying degrees of density over the grain of the wood evokes a sense of heightened spirituality of nature. These wall sculptures as well as all Brosk's artworks are meant to celebrate the beauty, serenity and spirituality found within nature.
“When I turned from architecture to fine art, I initially used wood as a medium because it was more affordable than concrete and steel. But I started to be drawn to the beauty of it and was taken with the possibility of collaborating with wood as a distillation of the larger notion of Nature. The Western Landscape continues to touch my inner soul and has taught me so much, not just about things like perspective, scale and the play of light and shadows, but about myself and how to live life everyday.”- Jeffrey Brosk
