Peter Brook - 'Counterpoint'

Wednesday 12 - Saturday 29 January 2022


Influenced by the play of light between cracks and doors, geometric designs of contemporary architecture and digital codes, Brook’s works in Counterpoint are both process driven and time dependent.

Brook makes all his creative decisions for painting through digital sketching, exploring the interaction of colour, value, saturation and composition within a strict geometric format. The artist then prints a final selection of digital sketches as reference for the creation of the paintings, meticulously making note of all measurements. A strict adherence to the sketch allows him to focus on the process of producing the paintings, a slow and meditative procedure involving stretching and preparing the canvas or paper, measuring distances, taping and masking and painting the multiple layers. Balance in composition with precision in line and colour are important to Brook.
