Washington artist Scott G. Brooks
“WE THE PEOPLE” – a solo exhibition of 12 new works by Washington artist Scott G. Brooks – opened on Friday evening, October 29, 2010, at Long View Gallery in Washington, D.C. Brooks’ works reflects the political and economic turmoil that takes up the head space of those who are paying attention, and shows the detailed figures and storytelling themes the artist has become known for. In the past the messages were often subtle and hidden in the elaborate artworks. In contrast, “We the People” blatantly speaks to the pop-culture-obsessed and politically-charged landscape in which Brooks live today. This is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Washington, D.C. in two years.
