James Brook / Art


My works often combine text with image, examining the slippages of meaning that occur between language and visual communication. A constant preoccupation is the mechanics of seeing and recognition: how images are ‘read’, meanings understood and how the conventions of painting – mark-making and perspective – allow a flat surface to be experienced in three dimensions.


Essentially, all of my practice is collage: melding together seemingly disparate fragments from the history of painting; from graphic design and architecture; and from popular culture. This intuitive combining of diverse elements show how creative play can feed the imagination, giving the mind a space in which to soar.
