Malcolm Brookes

Elected to RCA in 1990

I am a painter of diverse subject matter, the common element being its potential for compositional structure. Underlying abstract considerations are important to me though the outcome is usually realistic/figurative.   My style has changed with time - earlier pictures being often more spontaneous and painterly.   Recent work has been more preplanned, restrained and calm.  My preferred media are oils, gouache and pastels.
