Dorothy Brook

Dorothy Brook became a sculptor in a roundabout way. She had studied Graphic Design at St Martins School of Art and worked as a freelance designer for about 10 years. When circumstances changed, a friend suggested she join a sculpture class. She loved it having no idea that she would be able to work in three dimensions having been used to seeing everything from a graphic and linear perspective.

To her surprise her graphic background gave her work a very different look. The lines and curves have to flow when viewed from every angle. The form is pared down until all that is left is its essence. Ultimately the aesthetic of the piece is the most important element.

Although Dorothy may start a sculpture with an armature and an idea of what she is going to make, it very often changes during the process. It is the sculpture that dictates where it is going and she follows, refining the lines as it progresses. Usually working in plaster as she finds it is easier to achieve the sharp edges and smooth surfaces that define her style. ‘I love to capture the split second that epitomizes the dynamic of a movement, just as a photograph would – the frozen moment.’

Dorothy Brook still loves the process as much as she did in that first sculpture class. The realisation that her drawings can and have come to life is very satisfying, not bad for a Graphic Designer!

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
