Artist Statement

Brooks’ work explores the complex boundaries between the documentary and the fictional as mundane scenes are transformed into hyperreal cinematic tableaus. Ambiguous narratives are embedded as spaces are treated as film sets, revealing traces of characters and creating a sense of time wherein action seems to precede or follow the image.
