The Long View Gallery celebrates its latest show, a collection of new paintings and drawings by Scott G. Brooks, with an opening reception this Saturday night from 5 to 8 p.m. The show will be up from this Saturday, May 10 through June 7.
The show is entitled Under the Skin and is the largest exhibit of work by Brooks to date. These new works are meticulously detailed, heightening the allure of their quirky narratives. Highlighted against a backdrop of social, sexual, and psychological themes, the details only reveal themselves after several viewings and close study--with new meanings developing at every glance.
The premiere of a short film exploring Brooks's creative process as he prepared for Under the Skin will be shown during the opening reception. This is the most recent film in Brandon Bloch's series showcasing Washington DC artists.
Brooks's distinctive work is highly collected and sought after. Brooks’s collectors include David Arquette and Courtney Cox, Patricia Arquette, Billy Shire, movie producer Charles Wessler, and author Frank Warren of the Post Secret book and website.
