Dimension Gallery: Mimicry


Austin Chronicle 2017

“Blacksmiths are typically excluded from the art world by those who believe we are all farriers or bladesmiths from a long-ago past,” begins the statement heralding this new exhibition.

Well, we add, anyone who, after they’ve seen this show, still believes that? That’s the kind of person we refer to, technically, as a fucking idiot.

This “Mimicry” at Dimension Gallery is a show of stunning new pieces by Colby Brinkman, a founder of the Austin Metal Authority, who works in iron the way other artists might work in wood or clay, and whose finely wrought creations are often inspired by the gorgeous and creepy anatomies of arthropods.
