From Jeffrey Brooks:
"I’m thrilled to bring this body of work to 116 Gallery in St Charles, IL in a solo show. This body of paintings includes pieces that I’ve been working on for the last three years. Those that haven’t seen my paintings might be bewildered to hear that they are mostly built up from spraying automotive paints with mega-detailed cut one-time use stencils. And in this work you’ll also see paint mixed with silica, 24k gold and copper leaf, broken glass, cut and layered strips of transparent vinyl, brushed enamel, stacks of resin, and of course you’ll see my obvious love affair with hot rod paints with oodles of metal flakes and candied paints. You can click into any of these images to get more info about materials or sizes as well as more detailed photos and to purchase. "Before I show you this work i’d like to say in short my goal is to produce compulsively “lookable” paintings that make you say 'wow, i’ve felt like that.' My work at its core has this goal, and sometimes it might be an uncomfortable conversation."
