“Truth, full stop, and beauty, full stop, we cannot see or access in their entirety.
The most we can do is use sticks and oils and metals and bodies and other things
that come from this rock, none of which are truth or beauty in full,
to try to reach for them.”
Anelecia Hannah Brooks’ work is contemporary realism painted with depth and emotive qualities that remind us of our place in the world. Anelecia, grown and raised in the Pacific Northwest, creates meditative and reflective paintings. Her quiet paintings of everyday objects reflect the passage of time... the used piece of soap, the crumpled up ticket and childhood stuffed animals.
