brook and black

Artist, Researcher

brook & black is an art partnership which brings together a combination of skills rooted in fine art practice: installation, sound, video, printmaking, photography and sculpture. From a process of research, investigation and experiment we work with made and found objects, light and sound to engage the viewer through intervening in the structure of space and sound. Through shifting the viewer's perspective in this way, new readings, connections and emotional responses are evoked. Several core themes may be traced within the work: layers of human experience within structured or built space; memory and the passing of time; the fluidity and transformational aspects of water; the expressive and still surprising force of light and shadow. One or more of these themes often emerges in the work, frequently made in response to a specific gallery, exhibiton space or site. This work is researched and developed alongside teaching (Oxford Brookes University, Regent's University London and Camberwell College of Arts) and delivering engagement programmes for galleries (Modern Art Oxford etc) and non-gallery contexts.
