The Artist - Libby Brooks
I’m Libby Brooks MA (RCA), a Cornwall-based Sculptor working in a variety of materials and scales responding to fundamental questions around existence. My desire is to grow so quiet and to work so deeply to participate fully in the mystery within which we are all embedded. I consider my works ‘precipitations’ - a process of intense observation, sense making and reflection folds inwards to reinvent something with a similarly charged essence. The Earth’s crust, where human and animal life scratches the surface, weather batters, worms, beetles and moles dig, is probed to uncover visual, psychological and poetic associations. The broader landscape or any remnant of it - the broken, the leftover, the discarded and the overlooked is of equal interest. Experience is distilled into organic forms which simultaneously invite and resist classification emitting a mysterious and unrelenting life force - we long for the stories behind them… often making them up.
