Katie Brookes solo exhibition at Chopping Block in Peckham

Katie Brookes (Drawing Year 2013) has a solo exhibition at new art space The Chopping Block in Peckham. 
KATIE BROOKES: First Date for Three Years
28th April - 6th May
Private View Thursday 28th April 

The Chopping Block is proud to be presenting its first solo show, First Date for Three Years, featuring the new works of talented artist, Katie Brookes.
In an exhibition exclusively showcasing Brookes’ most recent paintings, First Date for Three Years serves as an insight into the artist’s ongoing endeavours to explore and interpret the varied conditions of human experience.
Brookes’ paintings are carnal unfoldings; visceral, subversive and absurd. Instinctual forms and colours exist somewhere between suggestion and evidence, revealing to us perturbed scenes that flaunt the subtle ways in which narratives are formed. Whilst at times grotesque and primal, these are stories whose characters, and motivations lie hidden. They are untrue realities – peculiar to themselves – liberated by symbols, signs and a constant flux between surreal humour and the real – in which deeper meanings are inevitably conveyed.
The new gallery's ambition is to provide an alternative platform for creative, artistic talent – both well known and obscure – across multiple spheres. Through a considered selection of programmed events, printed ephemera and a digital presence, we aim to create a critical engagement that revolves around a monthly curated topic – culminating in an exhibition at the end of each month.
Address: The Chopping Block, 22a Blenheim Grove, Peckham London, SE15 4QN
