UK artist, Julie Brook’s immersive experience in isolated locations produces works that can shift perspectives. See Blogroll for a link & clarification.

Julie Brook’s art is an engagement with landscape and resulting out of this, an art stream of her discovery of what it means to her. She has a multifaceted approach in which she captures elements of natural landscape; lightly ‘drawing’ symbols on to or introducing elements into the landscape; or extracting landscape as a material to utilize in her drawings on paper. Her photographs of her explorations of the made and unmade in landscape capture a moment in time, and the washing away or erosion of Brook’s paintings on a landscape, underscore the land’s permanence and power over human intervention. While the drawings on paper using sand and other found materials, including natural pigment, are likely to also be ephemeral, the beauty of these extractions as part of a landscape on paper, is magnified. Somehow the viewer apprehends the landscape’s dominion /
