Steven Brock was born and raised in the Appalachian foothills, but found his home in the Southwest nearly a decade ago, however he has been creating art out of found objects and reclaimed materials for much longer. Steven moved to Prescott, Arizona in 1997 and founded Discoveryworks a couple of years later. Brock's oeuvre consists of custom steel work, such as handrails, gates and decorative walls along with paintings of acrylic and oils, and an array of creative sculpture.
Brocks inspiration began when he lived down stream from a dam on the Muskingum river in West Virginia. "The dam had created a big eddy in the river so that all the trash washed onto the riverbank. Whole communities seemed to come ashore, especially after a big storm or flood." In this sea of trash, Steven saw an endless resource to create art and this is where his journey to make art from found objects began.
An example of his work can be found at the Raven Cafe in downtown Prescott. Aside from using found objects in his business work, it is also an integral part of his personal work, which includes, but is not limited to steel sculpture. "You never know what objects are going to present themselves, or what you're going to have to work with." Steven's artistic path has been one of evolution and the ability to connect different objects.
