D. L. Brock was influenced by fauvism, synthetic cubism, Caribbean art, naïve and outsider art over a 40 year period.
Brock has created art through many mediums - charcoal, graphite, oil, acrylic, egg tempera, gouache and pastel.
Over the past decade, Brock has dedicated his art to using all reclaimed materials including surface, paint, brushes etc.
His painting surfaces have included reclaimed tin, burlap, cardboard, melaleuca bark, reclaimed press board, wood planks, stones etc.
Telling a story, while giving a nod to such greats as RA Miller, Wölfli, Finster, Golub, Beardon, Basquiat, Rivera, Matisse, Picasso, Klee, Gauguin, Kandinsky, Miro; Brock paints with emotion and physicality in a naive primitive style.
