Courtney Symes, Melburnin', Trouble Magazine, August 20.
, Dr Terri Brooks explores natural mark making via paint and surface textures in her latest exhibition, Over the Edge. Considering herself “a city based landscape artist”, Brooks explains that “the walls and walkways are my hills and valleys. My work is process based but the end result matters. The process is ephemeral, the outcome concrete...” Brooks has the innate ability to create striking, complex works from urban scenes that most of us would find unappealing and overlook as a source of inspiration. The brilliance of her work lies in her skill for finding beauty in the colours, textures and lines of the urban environment, which is often worn and far from pristine perfection. Light Speed and Over the Edge run from 9 – 27 August. - www.flg.com.au Flinders Lane Gallery
