Peter Brooke is a painter of American landscapes—a subject he has singularly pursued for over 15 years. Over the course of his career, his work has evolved from dark and foreboding renderings of wetlands to lighter, airier compositions. Brooke describes his paintings as “falling somewhere between reality, dream, and personal myth, [exploring] the extraordinary in an ordinary natural environment.” His more recent and best-known compositions typically illustrate vast expanses, whether of sky, land, or water, with softly shifting forms and a stripped-down palette. For Brooke, the natural world is an allegorical means by which to explore themes of the fleeting nature of human experience.
