John Brooke


WINNER – 2011 PricewaterhouseCoopers Prize for Sculpture

WINNER – 2010 Franco Belgiorno-Nettis | Transfield Holdings Prize for Sculpture

John Brooke’s sculpture interprets the landscape that surrounds him on Sydney’s Northern Beaches – the colours of the ocean and the sky. “I love the way things move in the landscape there – clouds, surf, tides, waves, currents, and wind in the treetops”.

John’s work inhabits a gap between painting and sculpture – his work is, in its own way, painterly.   He captures unique moments in time with his creations of colour, form and movement.
