Extinctions Archive


Mr. Brodkin, originally trained at Cooper Union (BFA) has exhibited in Germany, Spain, Korea and in many sites in the U.S. including Soho, Chelsea, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia. He has also shown in many juried competitions whose jurors include Dan Cameron, Donald Kuspit, Andre Emmerich, Holly Solomon, Charlotta Kotik, Cora Rosevear, Maurice Tuchman and Christa Clarke.

Many of these works - often crossing the line between the abstract and the depictive - reveal concerns about “Communications”. Forms and symbols from indigenous arts to the binary numerals of today’s cybernetics may surface, referring to our species’ evolved efforts to send, receive and preserve information, discoveries and knowledge - as well as telling and perpetuating untruths and superstitions. “Trompe l’oeil” illusions are sometimes employed, a metaphor for all the illusions we live with.

Mr. Brodkin works with an ever-changing “palette” of materials: acrylics, enamels, latex, glazes, varnishes, collage. Grounds may include fiberboard, canvas, pressed wood, burlap or in combination - and are often in unusual shapes, enriching the visual experience.
