Scott G Brooks
"My art is about exposing. I intrude and invite the viewer to intrude as well. I peek behind closed doors, into the hidden lives, and private moments of my subjects. Delving into the psyche and physical appearance of the subject represented, I examine and then expose for all to see.
"Anatomical distortions separate the figures from the photographic ideal. The abstraction allows me to create my own reality. Without the distractions of perfect anatomy, I am free to explore the figure as needed. The distortions I apply to the figures are recognizable, but more familiar in a different context."
Scott Brooks is one of 50 contemporary artists featured in Metamorphosis 2 (beinArt Publishing).
