In the archives of the Detroit Free Press quotes from articles were selected that describe bricks meeting another object. The consequences result in sometimes comic but more often tragic outcomes, and instigate a chain of reactions, from injury, to legal proceedings, to the reorganization of cities. Each quote has been hand painted onto linen with matte medium mixed with shale from Forterra Brick.
Media: shale mixed with acrylic matte medium on linen
Dimensions: 8.5 x 11 x 1.5in
Presented as part of the solo exhibition “Cities of Restless Objects” at Simone DeSousa Gallery, Detroit.
