Salzwedel’s work focus on landscapes that reflect the subtle friction between urban development and nature – His work evokes the fragility of our environments often giving hints of mankind’s encroachment on massive landforms. His medium of choice is a statement of this clash – graphite, a natural mineral, resin, a byproduct of plant materials, and mylar, a manufactured film. With this process, Salzwedel is able to accomplish ethereal artworks with a sense of depth. Salzwedel casts some of these pieces in vintage medicine tins and corroded pipe-ends, lending an intimate quality to the works. As a whole he brings these together creating a beauty and calm out of the detritus we have laid upon the earth.
