Brooke Wilkie, Singer/ Songwriter

Brooke is the lead singer in renowned Perth band “Bears and Dolls”. www.facebook.com/bearsanddolls

Brooke writes songs with themes based on personality disorders and psychological states.
In this painting I have depicted Brooke’s expressive quality as a singer, an explosion of intense feeling and eccentricity.

Multiple layers of paint have been formed and reformed in a time consuming process. I have chipped, scratched, dug, and torn paint in order to create a tenacious material form that resonates and harmonises with the psychological content.
