Artist: Steven Brooks
Artist’s Statement- Born in New York City, I grew up in New Jersey and have lived in Connecticut since graduating from Pratt Institute with honors and a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design. I was a licensed architect in New York, an NCIDQ qualified Interior Designer and a LEED Accredited Professional with the US Green Building Council. Together with my business partner Frank Loffredo, we ran Loffredo Brooks Architects where as an interior designer, architect and industrial designer, I was the recipient of IBD awards for seating and furniture systems and a number of architectural and interior design awards. The design world also offered me the opportunities of being an instructor at Paier College of Art in New Haven, the Parsons School of Design in NYC, and an adjunct professor at the NY School of Interior Design.
After 25 years of wearing a suit and tie, it has been a wonderful life changing direction to explore sculpture and the world of three dimensional art. Meeting David Boyajian in 2009 awakened thoughts and desires to work three dimensionally to create forms and to manipulate space with a sense of movement and freedom. My art explores the relationship of positive and negative space ad is about movement, energy and the inherent balance of forms and lines in steel. I am looking forward to continuing this journey of discovery and exploration.
