Hildebrandt’s work responds to Kansas City’s parks, parking lots, and imagined inner workings that come from his perspective as a transitory inhabitant of the city. As commuter, renter, and artist, Hildebrandt’s on site sketches inform larger studio based work; forcing the landscape to mature within the dual role of the studio/living space. Contained within the work are beautiful layers, cutaways revealing portions of earth, complex line work, and possibly the most overwhelming quality: the presence of the human hand within each piece. Brock was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, studied at the Kansas City Art Institute, and currently resides in Kansas City, Missouri.
