Biography

Pegan Brooke makes paintings inspired by her studio environs in Bolinas, California and Ketchum, Idaho and maintains a parallel practice of creating video/poems shot by the Aven River in Pont-Aven, France. Light falling on water as visual metaphor for the fleeting qualtity of experience is a central theme of the work. Brooke has exhibited extensively, and her work is owned by the Guggenheim Museum, New York; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the Des Moines Art Museum; the Swig Collection, San Francisco; and the Anderson Collection, Menlo Park, California. Her work has been widely reviewed, including in Art in America, The New York Times, and Artweek.
