Over the past 10 years as an exhibiting artist Brooke has been able to develop a unique style that is not quite catagorizable. With a background in plein air (on site) landscape painting, she has gained an intuitive affinity for color and dynamic composition. Brilliantly colored blocks of color cascade across the canvas, creating a wonderfully pixelated image of urban or rural environments that shimmer with dynamic energy. Borcherding says these “deconstructions” aim to “shed light on the beauty of ordered chaos.” Brooke has most recently been awarded a prestigious prize for best oil/acrylic painting at the 2018 Carmel Plein Air Competition. She is nationally and internationally collected and shows at galleries in 5 different states- Washington, California, Oregon, Utah, and Maine.
Opening reception Friday April 3 from 6:00-9:00 pm, show runs through May 30th.
