season 2. episode 1.
Born and raised in central New Jersey, 28-year-old artist Brooke Rowlands has been a proud resident of Oklahoma since 2002. Over the years she’s developed a homogenous blend of both contemporary and still life, often incorporating flowers, birds, trees and fish into gorgeous abstract backgrounds.
I am excited to get the new year of film's underway. The @1614 series has allowed me to be able to become friends with some of the most talented artist in Oklahoma. Brooke is no exception. She was a little unsure about the interview process leading into the shoot. When we got there - we just kinda hung out a little and got to a point where we were just talking. I actually had her mic'd up for that - just to get some authentic audio. By the end of the day - we could have talked for hours.
I really wanted to focus on the detail of the artwork - and leave the audience wanting more. Brooke will be showing her work at my studio - so the idea behind the films is to let the audience meet the artist - and tease them with the work. I thought this was successful.
