Exhibition: Rory Brooke: London Fields Revealed

30th September – 30th November 2021

Park Life by Rory Brooke

The exhibition at The Broadway Bookshop focuses on images around London Fields park. Starting with my Lockdown daily walk I am increasingly aware of the multitude of interesting views with for example the geometry of buildings contrasting with the organic form of trees. The series explores different ways of interpreting these impressions. — Rory Brooke

About Rory Brooke

In my work I illustrate underlying issues and context in society while also seeking original ways to look at composition and colour. I am interested in the interaction between our urban and rural landscapes, climate change, the environment and development. I often draw inspiration from local scenes. Most of my work is screenprint or linocut.

I have exhibited in group and solo shows in locations including London, Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff and venues and shows including: the London Art Biennale 2021; Royal West of England Academy Annual Open; London City Hall; Woolwich Print Fair; and the Princes Foundation, Shoreditch. I am the founder of East London Printmakers.

I was selected to take part in Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year shown on tv in 2021 and was shortlisted to the last three in my heat.

Tai-Shan Schierenberg, painter, on my work: “I love the flatness of the colours, and the way the pigment goes down is very beautiful… It’s quite magical.”

Kate Bryan, British art historian, curator and arts broadcaster: “I think his colour palette is great. He’s a very sophisticated artist.”
