Untitled

Artist

Name: Queen E Brooks
Statement: This was an intuitive work and a challenge regarding the medium I chose to use creating this art piece. I had never worked in linoleum to the extent of this size and complexity. I had no preconceived ideas when starting the piece and begin creating from the edges in. I normally work in an abstract manner with pattern, symbols, and color. The symbol of a tree is part of an image vocabulary I often use. The tree symbol implanted itself in my mind and within this work. I than started to envision planetary life forms, flowers and lastly urban buildings. I physically fashioned my thoughts in the linoleum but have yet to determine what meaning, if anything this work holds for me. I enjoyed creating the patterns that make this work such a strong piece and for perhaps the first time I felt color was unnecessary. I am immensely grateful for the guidance and assistance of artist/ printer Nicholas Hill, without his encouragement and help I doubt this work would exist.
