VCU communication arts alum Samantha Brodek’s artwork is on display and for sale at Harrison Street Cafe until the end of the month.
“This collection of artwork titled ‘Bones’ is focused on illuminating the fragile delicate nature that lies within all living things,” Brodek said. “This collection revolves around the beauty of decay, and the exposure of the harsh reality of our fragile existence.”
Brodek’s latest collection features items such as a deer skull mount, pen and ink illustrations and hand-made deer tooth pendant and deer vertebrae necklaces.
“With each piece of art, I took a decaying, bare structure and decorated it with ornate details to enhance the beauty of the intricate structure and foundation that we rely on,” Brodek said.
