Brian Rust’s most recent body of work, “Out of History,” takes inspiration from the curves of clay vessels and amphorae, the loosely-draped figures, and crumbling statuary, and blends it with familial representations and personal symbolism. Many of the works are self-portraits or depictions of his children, whose faces he has meticulously archived the last 20 years using silicon molds. Others directly reference decaying artifacts and pottery shards. All of the clay used is from Lizella, Georgia. The mixed-media works are created by manipulating digital images Rust photographed in Spain, then drawing on the surface with a clay slurry, graphite and India ink.
