Artist Statement

 Brent Fogt creates drawings of imaginary organic forms that resemble islands, underwater plants or microscopic organisms. Within these forms are waves, explosions and amoeba. Closer still, the drawings contain thousands of tiny marks—usually circles or small lines made with pen or pencil. Brent varies the size and density of these marks to produce patterns and visual textures. Through his slow, deliberate technique, Brent explores drawing's potential to mimic the process of organic growth, resulting in forms that are perpetually changing.
