Brian Dettmer sifts through stacks of old books, boxes of dusty cassette tapes, and piles of obsolete maps to uncover the perfect source and subject for his conceptual explorations and sculptural dissections. Dettmer alters pre-existing materials by selectively removing and manipulating elements as a way to allow new interpretations and ideas to emerge. With the precision of a surgeon, Dettmer uses clamps, scalpels and tweezers to recontextualize his found objects and reveal hidden meanings.

Brian Dettmer has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums throughout North America and Europe.
