LeeAnn Brook is a Nevada City, California based artist whose works explore landscape through color and movement. Using an expressive layering of colors, textures, and awareness of light, Brook’s paintings are about environments of water, grasslands, gardens and forests that awaken the senses and soothe the soul. Filled with intensity of color, light and textures, LeeAnn Brook’s large format contemporary landscape paintings are built with layers of color that reflect the many layers of nature. Depth is created with the use of subtle patterns of spatter, strokes and drips, and is then integrated into the painting as a whole, where the technique becomes secondary only to the full effect of a vibrant landscape. The rustling of grasses, glimmering of branches and stillness of a riverbed are all an integral part of the essence of Brook’s paintings.
