Peter Brooke Press Release

Peter Brooke: Sanctuary
April 26 – May 25 at Gallery NAGA

Peter Brooke returns to Gallery NAGA with a new body of work, Sanctuary, which showcases an imaginatively reconstructed travelogue of the artist’s past two years. Brooke’s adventures served a muse for his further exploration of atmospheric skyscapes and dark woodscapes hinted at in his last show- a shift in direction from his usual deep and panoramic seascapes. Peter Brooke’s inspiration can in part be credited to his month long residency in Northeast Harbor, Maine, funded by Richard Estes’ Acadia Foundation.
