'Building Art Like A Builder' Collection at South of Grand Social
This is not unlike an architect or builder, like our friend, Nicholas Donlin, at Zenith Design + Build would approach a plan for a custom project.
What you’re seeing in this post is a collection of artwork that was on display on April 13 at The South of Grand Social hosted by Zenith Design + Build. This drawing is a solid example of the commonality between Brent's Art and a builder’s construction process.
Much the same, Brent begins with a spatial analysis of the environment, then develops the architectural layout before finishing with details. You can see this best through the lens of his structural line drawings, such is Studio V.
"I intentionally leave strategic evidence of my process through the art development. That point being to lend a sense of movement to the landscape; and beyond that, to document the evolution through my visual exploration."
“My studio is long and narrow with a north-facing window in Downtown Des Moines, IA. I know every edge, crack and surface like the back of my hand. Studio V is a cityscape made out of a studio. If you see the hotel rooms, what else do you see?”

If you ventured downstairs, you saw many pieces from the studio that were produced over Brent's career.
Do you see something you love in the collection? Studio Holland Art permits prospective collectors to take an artwork home to see if a piece of art fits into your décor or just fits into your life. The timeframe is generally three to four days. Inquire about test driving artwork.
