Brock Q. Piper (b. 1985) currently lives and works in Melbourne, VIC. Growing up on a farm nestled din the valleys of the snowy mountains, he was taught oil painting by his grandmother at the age of four. Piper’s work is a personal reflection of his life experiences, aimed at discovering truth through an exploration of time, death, shamanism and nature.

Brock Q. Piper on his practice;

“My creative process is of evolving observation; of looking and experiencing before I begin to create. This is a process that has had it’s downfalls in the past, as I am driven, above all else, by curiosity of excess and experiences, both good and bad. As I paint, I will deliberately set out to make an ‘ugly’ picture, I then seek to bring out the awkward beauty within. This is a process of reformation, as I find usually the most horrifying things are told in the most beautiful of ways. I enjoy provoking movement from static, awkwardly placed figuration, in the depiction of time and space. A visual diary of encrypted language played out in the corrugations of brushstrokes. I look to find balance in composition and colour vibrations, allowing the work to evolve in a fluid way, rather than being confined by a final concept. To capture life with as little intervention as possible.”

Brock Q. Piper featured in our Summer 2016 Group show titled Rodeo Sideshow. We look forward to presenting more of Piper’s work in 2017!
