The work of sculptor Jeffrey Brosk is heavily influenced by the American West, a region whose mountains, vistas, and flowing prairies have long been a rich source of spiritual and aesthetic inspiration for American artists. The warm wooden tones and strong lines of Brosk’s pieces reflect his preoccupation with this vast and rugged landscape. Brosk’s sculptures are a testament to a powerful harmony between artist and materials: organic forms and natural wooden grain work in tandem with right angles and blocks of gold leaf. Brosk takes as his starting point salvaged pieces of wood and stone, among other materials. He has a BA and BS from the University of Pennsylvania and a Masters in Architecture from MIT. Though frequently found hiking and horseback riding in the mountains, he currently lives and works in New York City.
