Brock DeBoer

Shake hands with young artistic go-getter Brock DeBoer and your arm will remember for days. He's enthusiastic and intense, a quick, booming talker in the Vince Vaughn mold (with some of the big actor's height but none of his girth) and the best arm pumper working the Crossroads. On a hot, busy First Friday over the summer, he brought us up to date on pretty much everything that he and his friends and his fiancée have ever done. That includes his trippy lamps — hollow simulacra of classical Grecian busts that hold bulbs and light rooms. The rest of his sculpture is also witty and appealing and reason enough to visit the Pop Shop at City Ice, but the lamps are breakout works, the kinds of things destined for sidebars in design magazines (and cameos in our nightmares, but that's a compliment, too). DeBoer raised Kickstarter funds this year to pick up a Thing-O-Matic 3-D Printer and good porcelain to feed it, which he says will let him make work that's even more complex and functional. That's good news because if something called a Thing-O-Matic was made for anyone, it's this guy.
