Brock Drenth Artist Bio:
Brock Drenth was born in Jamestown, North Dakota in 1981. Encouraged by an early emphasis in art education, Drenth began his studies with Gordon Lucht, learning the basic fundamentals of painting and drawing. After graduating from high school in 2001, Drenth attended Jamestown College, where he studied under artist Sharon Cox and the renowned landscape painter Stefan Baumann. While at Jamestown College, he built onto his foundation skills and refined his technique in drawing and painting. He received his BA degree in 2005. Drenth's representational paintings explore subject matter ranging from the human figure to landscapes and still life. He implements techniques such as drawing and uses composition and color in order to evoke emotions. Drenth's paintings are like an exchange between the artist, the subject and viewer - a conversation about the underlying facets of the object under observation. For inspiration Drenth looks to contemporary artist like Andrew Wyeth, Lucian Freud, and Wayne Thiebaud, and to past masters like Vilhelm Hammershoi, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and many others. "¨ Drenth attended the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, where he studied under the painters Jung Han Kim, Dean Larson, Craig Nelson, Tomutsu Takashima, Baoping Chen and Zhaoming Wu. He received his MFA degree from AAU in 2011.
