This is a color etching, 10 ½”x12 ¼”, signed at the bottom in pencil “Country wreath, 165/200 Ed. II, Brooke Morrison”. It is triple matted and framed under glass and is in very good condition.
Brooke Morrison, a native Utah, graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Fine Arts. After a diverse and comprehensive training in art, she chose to specialize in printmaking. Her current focus is with silkscreen, etching, and embossing techniques. Here she combines the skills of the artist, craftsman, and chemist, using methods which have changed very little since the first etchings. Brooke hand tints each etching, uniquely setting it apart from the typical print. It is because of the versatility and capacity for pure expression that she finds these media particularly exciting. She is continually conscious of the use of pattern in her work. "Everything is either a negative or a positive form. Pattern in not a boring repetition; it is rhythms and intervals; it is staggering the tensions. That's what makes art exciting." Brooke Morrison's work is currently on display in many galleries throughout the western US. -
