Terri Brooks - Painting is Architecture
Wednesday 31 May - Saturday 17 June 2023
'The paintings in this exhibition continue my linear exploration of the grid. But not as grid as straight line rather as grid as motion and construction (building).
One line leads to another. Sometimes works sit for weeks until the next layer presents itself. An intuitive ideology of trust that at some point everything will work out.
That stopping point is always the same. A compositional resolution I could never have conceived prior to commencement.
My current palette is black, white, and brown (light, shade, earths).'
In her artwork, Terri Brooks moves concrete observations to another domain in which they adopt a new nature and quality. Because of this transposition, we as a viewer are challenged to experience reality from a new perspective.
