|Scott pulls together social
commentary, psychological twists, cultural critique, and physical disfigurements into a
bizarre and captivating visual world. As a resident of Washington, D.C., since 1990, he
has inevitably added a few political jabs to the mix.Lenny Campello, a D.C. art critic, wrote of Scott in his Artomatic 2004 review:
"Creating a new place for himself is Scott Brooks, who in this new Artomatic incarnation is like a strange, macabre John Currin, but can paint and draw a lot better than Currin ever learned to. A lot of people were talking about Brooks disturbing images; this is usually a sign of success for any visual artist. Both the police and art collectors need to keep an eye on this talented artist."
