Through a random and appropriated graphic system, Brock rolls a Dungeons and Dragons dice set to generate a personal scar-like language. His marks, determined by the die’s symbols and numbers, cover large canvases that are draped over metal structures, stacked against the walls, and leaning back on a makeshift room divider. It’s all an invitation to read and decipher the hidden story buried beneath.
His schedule is as energetic as his paintings. He is finalizing plans for his second curated exhibition, “Inflection” at HVCCA (January 2010), while his first curated show has even yet to open at Motus Fort, Tokyo, later this month. Both high energy group shows, Brock gives no signs of slowing down in curating or painting. For now, he’ll keep rolling the dice.
