Three-Dimensional Brick Sculptures by Brad Spencer

Published Apr 19, 2019

American artist Brad Spencer creates impressive sculptures that seem to break out of traditional brick walls.

“Each piece of work in the sculptor’s growing collection is an intriguing look at a common medium used in an unconventional way. The fact that bricks are typically an architectural material whose visual shapes rarely extend beyond anything more than a boxy wall makes them all the more attention-grabbing.

Many of the sculptor’s works play with the material’s architectural use, referencing its conventional purpose by inserting a wall or some sort of rectangular public divider. From these basic structures emerge Spencer’s three-dimensional figures. The artist uses a relief technique, working with unfired clay first to carve his figures in a brickwork pattern. He then proceeds to fire the pieces individually and assemble the bricks on the site of its display.”
