Lorraine Brooks Solo Art Exhibition
“FACES OF FREEDOM”
by: Lorraine Brooks
Having been trained at New York City’s prestigious High School of Art and Design, Lorraine has always been interested in the graphic arts. She majored in animation and cartooning, and commercial art, but her first love was always photography and graphics. Her photography has been featured in Gold Dust Magazine, and Odyssey Journal, and in her own book of poetry, Riding the Wave.
In her current series, Lorraine has combined her love of photography with her love of pen and ink illustration. Using photographs as models, she has produced life like ink illustrations in black and white, using the stippling technique. The stippling method (also known as pointillism), is a series of dots is placed strategically in patterns to form an image. When viewed from close up, the dots appear random – however when viewed at a distance they form a distinct pattern of lights and shadows, creating the details of the subject.
Lorraine’s area of focus is portraiture. In this showing, Faces of Freedom, she has chosen individuals who exemplify the concept of freedom in one form or another.
In addition to her work for this exhibit, she is currently working on a series of “freedom portraits”, illustrating her interpretation of the concepts of The Four Freedoms, as articulated by Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1941. These will be part of a group show including the works of other socially conscious international artists. The exhibit will travel around the country during 2018. These portraits are part of her Solo Exhibition here in the Island to Island Brewery taproom.
