Under the Skin: Figurative Work by Scott G. Brooks

May 10- June 7, 2008
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 10, 5pm to 8pm

In his latest series of work, Brooks focuses intently on painting the figure. Highlighted against a backdrop of social, sexual, and psychological themes, the meticulously detailed paintings and drawings of his wide-eyed progeny heighten the impact of the quirky narratives. Often, the details of his paintings only reveal themselves after several viewings and a close study, with new meanings developing at every glance. This is the largest exhibit of work by the Washington, DC, artist to date. Recent shows include “Tug of War” organized by Billy Shire Fine Arts at Hemphill Fine Arts in DC, “Fresh Meat” at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle and several exhibits at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles. Brooks is also well respected in the New York City art scene, with two shows in 2007 – one at MDH Fine Arts, in Chelsea, and one at Rapture CafĂ©, titled “Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art Show.”
