Brooke Borcherding

I am currently working on an ongoing body of landscape oil paintings that includes both the overlooked spaces that we encounter every day, to the picturesque landscapes we expect to see in a painting.

After focusing on smaller plein air (on site) paintings, I have shifted my attention to reproducing these paintings as larger studio iterations and deconstructions.

I am a recent Seattle transplant, presented with urban, water and natural surroundings for an abundance of subject matter. The way in which I go about depicting these spaces does not adhere to exactness but rather focuses on a truthful dialogue between observing and responding to my visual senses.

I have an affinity for strong linear compositions, telephone wires and images that recede into the distance that perhaps introduces both a wondering of what lies beyond as well as an honest depiction and experience of a place.
