There is something very surreal about the work of Brad Spencer. He uses common brick and mortar to create eye-catching, figurative scenes. But what really makes them stand out is the fact that they don't adhere to the blocky shape of such an everyday medium. Instead, Brad Spencer essentially carves the red bricks in order to create playful humans.
Based in Reidsville, North Carolina, Brad Spencer nails it on the head when he writes on his website, "Brick sculpture adds intrigue and interest to a commonly understood material as viewers try to figure out the techniques by which it was created." The lifelike look of the girls and boys portrayed in his work will have people scratching their heads in wonder and bafflement. Yet people won't be able to resist Brad Spencer's work.
