Broc Webster is a Sydney based emerging artist who works primarily with large format film photography, oil, and digital painting. Drawing upon the inherent historicity associated with museology, Broc stages tableaus that possess a constrained space reminiscent of habitat dioramas of the early 20th century to create scenes that are displaced from reality and frozen in time. A thematic presence of temporality underlies his work, with particular attention given to the burden the contemplation of mortality places upon the mind. Through an exploration into alternate theories of time and eternality, Broc wishes to offer potentiality for reality to exist beyond cognitive reason, and through his practice he seeks to build transcendental awareness.
