Scott G Brooks’ subject matter ranges from simple portraiture to intricate narratives. In his paintings, he takes social, psychological, and political issues and injects them with a dark sense of humor. Anatomical distortions separate the figures from the photographic ideal, which gives him the freedom to create his own distorted reality. His work is described as twisted and offbeat, sentimental, and disturbing.
Scott G. Brooks’ usage of naturalistic light juxtaposed with his exaggerated and distorted features make his straight portraits as surreal as his more elaborately composed fantastical pieces.
