Sarah E. Brook is a Brooklyn-based sculptor and installation artist from the Nevada high desert. Brook explores the relationship between external and internal (psychic) vastness through the use of translucency, layering and color gradients to morph her architectural structures into perceptual experiments.
She is particularly interested in the way perceptual experience can align (queer) identities. Brook has exhibited at Lesley Heller, Field Projects, Re:Art, the (un)Scene, NARS, Ground Floor Gallery, The Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art (NY) and was included in the 2019 BRIC Biennial in Brooklyn.
She has been awarded the 2019-2020 Leslie-Lohman Museum Fellowship (NY), the 2018 Media Arts Fellowship from BRIC (NY) and residencies from Marble House Projects, I-Park, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Jentel Foundation, Playa and Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts. Public art sculptures include Open Shelter (Prospect Park, NY, 2016), Viewfinding, a year-long installation and collaboration with queer poets (Riverside Park, NY, 2018-2019), Align (permanent installation, Crystal Park, NY, 2019) and a forthcoming permanent work commissioned by the City of New York (2023).
