Myth Making: The Art of John Brocke
June 6 - September 13, 2015
While his paintings are rendered with life-like precision, Brocke was less interested in photo-based realism and more devoted to using the medium of paint to truly represent the personalities and life of his subjects, whether he was depicting people or places. He often used symbolic or thought-provoking imagery - some of it imagined and mystical in intent - to reference aspects of his own life and thinking about the world. Brocke’s highly controlled and strikingly beautiful paintings are evidence of an artist with a singular vision and a remarkable dedication to his craft.
