Exposing A Private Moment

The level of detail and the distorted character designs are amazing as Scott G. Brooks makes a statement with his up-coming exhibition based on current events of "Domestic Terror."

Scott G. Brooks' statement:
We called the show 'Domestic Terror' because the work deals with the wide range of issues that could fall under such a headline. Several paintings focus on the terror that happens on the home front, such as dysfunctional families and screwed up relationships, while others focus on the political corporate forces terrorizing us. Most of the paintings are based in some way on news stories or events we've been subjected to recently. It seems like there is so much craziness going on right now and I try to capture just a little taste of that in my work.

Last Rites Gallery in New York, will host the "Domestic Terror" exhibition, beginning with an opening reception on September 12 from 7-11pm, and the exhibit will run till October 11.
