Nice preview of work for the Last Rites show is up at Hi-Fructose – check it out here.
Mining the shadows of his psyche, artist Scott G. Brooks takes inspiration from his work as a children’s book illustrator to create a foreboding narrative exhibition, ‘The Luckiest Widow In The World And Other Tales Of Misfortune,’ opening on December 3rd at NYC’s Last Rites Gallery. His figures, bearing signature anatomical exaggerations of the body, are set in far darker world than in previous works as the ‘tales’ focus on inner and outer manifestations of demons as well as captured scenes of misfortune. The figure centric compositions unfurl a potent mastery of atmosphere and setting, where characters cast in pervious works now meet with the moment of their doom.
