Adam Brent creates large and small sculptures that combine technology, raw materials, and found objects that explore the sentiment found in all things. With all of his work, it is important that the viewer experiences the surrounding space as impacted by color, scale and a direct use of choice materials.
Brent tends to make work that has an underlying theme of domesticity, place and memory. When he prints plastic objects that are either drawn or scanned, assemble carved ceramic objects, or builds large structures, he is assembling these components into larger domestic or psychological portraits that loosely develop until each work feels complete. His recent work paints a composite space where dark optimism is built out of cast assembled parts and kitsch elements. Spanning from the very small object to large- scale installations and collapsible structures, each work carries the balance between a narrative, history, form, space and material.
