Catherine Brooks at Ghostprint Gallery

Posted by: Necci – Jun 30, 2011


Throughout the month of July, Ghostprint Gallery will be showcasing the art of Catherine Brooks.

Brooks’ body of work reflects her personal mythology, depicting her views on love, memory and the cycles of life. Painting the female figure nude or “en deshabille” (partly clothed), Brooks typically blends poetic and mythic elements with insects, plants and other images from the natural world. Her aesthetic combines meticulous technique with a delicate sensuality.

Fans of The Princess Bride – not to be confused with True Love – will be familiar with the meaning of To Blave, the title of this exhibition.

The show will be appearing at Ghostprint Gallery (220 W. Broad St) from July 1st through July 30th, with a special preview showing tonight from 6 to 8 PM and an official opening tomorrow night for First Friday.
