Untitled (Brick Dust)
Mitch Iburg — 2021
inquire
This artwork is a result of Mitch Iburg's exploration of salvaged brick waste as a painting medium.
Decomposing brick waste from the former Twin Cities Brick Plant was gathered and
brought to the artist's studio. The material is pulverized to dust, blended with acrylic, PVA,
and cold wax binding agents, and applied on fired clay tiles.
Because the kilns were large and fired inefficiently, the color of the fired bricks varies
from red -orange-brown. The color variations of brick naturally result in subtle color
changes when used as a painting medium.

"I seek to create work which combines the physiological substance and emotional characteristics of place to form an expression of its terroir."
