Kerry Brooks



[+] Bio | Comments |

Kerry was born in Kenosha, Wisconsin in 1976. An early passion for representational art led her to travel to Eastern Europe to study at the Ukrainian Academy of Art in Kiev where students were encouraged to learn from the past by placing themselves within a wider structure of artistic tradition. Kerry continued her studies at the Repin Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia, a city where painting, sculpture, architecture, and culture were combined to stunning effect, providing endless examples of beauty as a respected ideal. Additional study at the New York Academy of Art allowed the artist to enrich her work through a rigorous study of anatomy and classical techniques.

 

Kerry says of her work, “While I paint and draw from a thoroughly western perspective – a classical interest in the human body and the trappings of human experience – I also endeavor to imbue my work with a certain eastern spirituality. I consider my portraits as windows into the lives of my subjects, often presenting the subject in a state of intense and dignified stillness. I strive to make paintings and drawings that are beautiful and meaningful, based on both my own interests and the timeless principles of classical art.”
