Roo Abrook is an artist producing contemporary mixed media collage using her own original drawings and paintings depicting mainly portraits of women and children. Within her work she investigates and poses self reflecting questions about the subject matter of beauty, youth and time.
Original graphite studies of Edwardian photographic postcards along with lens generated imagery of flora and fauna are developed using a combination of traditional and more experimental printing and mark making techniques.
The composition of her modern portraits portray an overall feeling of natural strength and beauty mixed with the fragility of the brief and every changing life that all women share.
Femininity from the past has been consciously re-contextualised to provoke thoughts about today's media culture that is obsessed with superficial youth.
Alongside her original collages there is an open edition collection of Dictionary page art prints available online and in lifestyle boutiques and art gallery shops. These prints have been featured in various National interior magazine style shoots.
Roo has worked collaboratively with Iconic English lamp company Anglepoise®, designing limited edition sets of light inspired prints for their sales catalogues as well as promotional ventures.
