Simulacra: New Drawings by David Brock

David Brock's current series of drawings reflects his continued interest with how we, as humans, interact and organize the landscape around us. This is especially evident at the intersection between our agrarian land and those we deem as “wild”. He has returned to the medium of drawing as a means of critical analysis towards both the how and the why of his art-making, essentially a means of self-reflection and self-expression.
