Theoretical and the Concrete
Featuring work by InLiquid Artist Brooke Lanier
The Bazemore Gallery
4339 Main Street, Philadelphia, PA
Brooke Lanier is an artist who finds beauty and interest in what can be imperceptible to others. Best known for her water and crushed brick dust series, she brings a microscopic eye and a deep seeded intellectual curiosity about the natural world. As she stated, “Whatever you spend a lot of time thinking about becomes important. Paying intense attention to overlooked details of the natural world elevates mundane things . . .”
In the series of works that comprise the exhibition, Theoretical and Concrete, Brooke has brought her attention to the traditions of Japanese and Chinese painting, which form the theoretical portion of the show and brick dust that encompasses the concrete.
