About the Artist:

Brock DeBoer’s artistic process as a ceramic sculptor utilizes porcelain, historical motifs, and surface treatments to re-contextualize everyday objects, items from his past, and objects of popular culture.

Many are highly nostalgic to his generation and beyond touching on many facets of everyday life. DeBoer’s highly crafted casts in porcelain become archival, altering their permanence while questioning the value of these everyday objects.

DeBoer draws influence from his midwestern upbringing combined with the ever-changing and vastly diverse landscape of Los Angeles and the rural landscape of Joshua Tree.
