Julie Brook will talk about her land based sculptural work in wild and remote landscapes in Scotland and Africa and give some insight in to her current projects in the Hebrides and Japan.
She responds directly to the specific nature of her environments expressing those influences through the sculptural work and large scale drawings she makes from the materials she finds. She is primarily concerned with how the forms are influenced by the more temporal elements such as light and shadow; climate and tidal changes.
Julie Brook is a British artist who has roamed, lived and sculpted in a succession of uninhabited and remote landscapes in North West Scotland: Hoy, Orkney; Jura, West coast; Mingulay, Outer Hebrides. She has also explored the black volcanic desert of central Libya and Jebel Acacus mountains.
