Altered Esthetics says
Altered Esthetics Solo Exhibitions Program is proud to present Everything Must Live: Works by Benjamin Davis Brockman at the Nomad World Pub in Minneapolis. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 8th, and the event is free and open to public.

Everything Must Live is an entry in a continuing narrative. This arc of representational work has always been devoid of humans, except for the depictions of nature’s memory of them. Rabbits personify rapid growth, resilience, adaptation, and creation. They are the primary inhabitants of an irradiated landscape, filled with mysterious flowers and organic forms. This story of this time and place unfolds exponentially as Brockman explore new studio methods, and intuitively follow his creative and spiritual journey. The paintings and papier-mâché masks selected for this exhibition represent a re-visitation of his history in art, theater, and non-linear storytelling, while also demonstrating the possibilities of creating from refuse and found materials. These works indicate a panic about the state of the natural world, mirroring the human conditions of sickness and recovery – loss and rebirth. Everything Must Live is an entry in an expanding world in which nature has rebound through the waste of human beings, charging through shadows toward light.

Benjamin Davis Brockman was born in 1980 in Emporia, Kansas. Brockman has since lived in numerous places across the U.S., he studied art and film and worked in theater and fine art printing. He moved to Minneapolis to in 2009 to pursue an MFA in printmaking from the University of Minnesota. Since graduation, he has exhibited prints internationally, as well as creating and performing puppet shows at Open Eye Figure Theater and In the Heart of the Beast in Minneapolis. Brockman creates in his basement studio in Seward and prints at Leg Up Studio in Northeast Minneapolis. He works as a Special Education Assistant with Autistic Children.
