"Seattle artist Brooke Westlund taps into a deep collective spirit in her abstract mixed media creations.  Her paintings embrace something absolutely individual and unique and simultaneously connects to the pulse of the collective whole."
                            -C.M.P developer of {the genius project}  

Artist Statement

Brooke Westlund, a native Seattleite, has always loved art. She studied Photography, Art History, and Business at Western Washington University. Following graduation, Brooke worked under artist James Jensen as an apprentice and was inspired to pursue painting.

 

She has slowly developed her unique style and built her career as an abstract and mixed media painter, exploring many styles and mediums over the years.  Her work explores her love of life, the beautiful city of Seattle and all that it encompasses: texture, simplicity, complexity, movement, color, spontaneity, awareness and chaos.  Brooke’s mixed media and abstract paintings show her world through her photography, different types of paints, dry pigments, stamps, encyclopedia cut outs, high gloss varnishes, and found
 materials. She blends them with large brushstrokes, splatters, drips and bold colors. 

Brooke has shown her work in many venues across the Seattle area. She has worked on multiple corporate commission projects for interior designers as well as individuals to create the perfect painting for their home.  She opened her public studio and gallery in the eclectic Pike Place Market in 2011 where she spends most of her time creating and showing her latest work. 

 

Check out her website, visit her in her studio right under Pike Place Market, or contact her to see her other work or to work with her for a custom painting for your home.

      On the paintings.....  "they are composed of many different moments of their own layered upon one another, there is a certain point where the painting seems finished but really it is just time to move onto a different stage in its life, in fact each painting continues to change each moment as more and more people experience it, it is ever evolving. It changes depending on where it is hung at the time and who walks by.  Even if you see the painting in a bar for a second as you walk by you had a moment with it and so you and the painting each contributed to each others lives even in a tiny way.  This process of being in the moment is how we should view our lives, not being attached to any one moment but just moving along.  Not worrying about the future or the past."
