Pegan Brooke draws inspiration from certain places and circumstances – the reflection of light as it dances upon water, morning fog across the landscape, and the crystalline beauty of snow. Brooke’s oil paintings are both abstract and meditative, combining the sensibilities of impressionism with the formal qualities of minimalism.
Through the use of metallic pigments and methodically placed brush strokes, the canvases appear to move and undulate as light bounces across their iridescent surfaces. Eliciting sensations of light as it dapples across the water’s surface or refracts and bends through fog and snow, Brooke’s paintings seem to shift and mutate as the viewer moves around them, much like the light transforms throughout the day.
