Brad Spencer brick sculptural compositions
How do you feel about contemporary art? Personally, I like it when the streets are decorated with unusual sculptures of talented artists. Some of them deserve special attention. Brad Spencer – talented sculptor from North Carolina. Since 1984, he has been creating sculptures … of brick. It would seem, at first glance, how may look a sculpture of a simple building brick – rude and unpretentious. But the hands of a talented artist and sculptor create works of art. “Art in the open air” surprises and amazes, unwittingly makes you wonder how this is possible.
First, for future sculptures selected the brick of desired color, then in the studio is assembled the necessary composition, cut, shaped and again disassembled, and then every brick carefully baked at a temperature of 1000 degrees.
Then the processed brick is taken to a place of installation of the future statue. And at this very place the master assembles the pieces together using cement. Passers-by and the locals like to watch Brad Spencer work, and even try to help him (with great pleasure) lay a brick, thereby creating a show under the guidance of the master. Thus, brick by brick grows an unusual sculptural work in front of all.
These sculptures adorn almost the entire town, drawing glances of passers-by. It seems that the time has stopped, and made the heroes freeze for a moment, harden in place, but it will take a little time, and they come to life again and continue their normal life on earth.
Originally! I am sure that the influx of tourists to this quiet town in North Carolina is now provided!
