Artwork of Oklahoma artist on display at
Bank of America Leadership Square

 

OKLAHOMA CITY (April 23, 2013) – Beginning May 1, the artwork of Oklahoma artist, Brooke Rowlands will be on display at Bank of America Leadership Square at 211 North Robinson Avenue in Oklahoma City.

 

Brooke’s floral series is inspired by memories of her grandmother through delicate floral illustrations and colorful monotype backgrounds.

“For this body of work, I invoked some of my fondest memories with my Grandmother; those when she showed me how to flower press. The beautiful flowers, fragile and delicate, were preserved like they were placed in the book yesterday. Even at an early age I knew how special it was to hold onto these flowers over the years; to remember the day you picked them or received them as a gift.

For this series, I have taken my love for my Grandmother and flowers, and created a body of work translating what she showed me when I was a small child, but with a twist. I created my “book” with Monotype backgrounds created using a printing press. The flowers were left black and white to focus the attention on the detail of the flower. Taking the color out of the flower and moving it to the background expresses my love for something much deeper and less superficial.” 

 

Born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey, Brooke’s passion for creativity began at an early age with her Grandmother’s influence in the arts. As a self-taught artist, Brooke has been a proud resident of Oklahoma for 9 years. Her work consists of refined illustrations of an array of flowers, fish and birds, working in mediums such as ink, acrylics, watercolors and more recently monotype printing.

 

Enjoy this series from May 1 – June 28, 2013 at Leadership Square.  Learn more about Brooke Rowlands at http://cityartscenter.org/Web_v2/exhibits/off-site-exhibits/brooke-rowlands/
