Harrison - Pickett

Fresh eye-popping brilliance from Jeffrey Harrison and Brooke Pickett

Louisianna-born artist Brooke Pickett's work came into focus soon after witnessing the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina. She begins each painting with a still life composed from common objects put together in uncommon ways and continues to collage and edit as she paints until she finds her way to abstraction. Perhaps, in some way, the only course to begin understanding parts of reality.

Jeffrey Harrison begins each canvas with a line and follows it through a visual onslaught of form and colour to it's poetic end.
