‘My paintings are based on observations of Strandhill peninsula and its weather. Studio Paintings are not pre-planned. I use a method of laying down and scraping off paint. Each layer and brush mark, informs the next. I repeat this layering and rejecting until I can locate myself and recognize the place and its weather. The paintings in this solo exhibition are an emotional response by me to environment and place.’
Tina Brooks lives and works in Strandhill, Co. Sligo. Her works have been purchased by Sligo Institute of Technology and The Office of Public Works and can be found in several collections throughout Europe, America, Japan and Ireland.
