Peter Brook is a visual artist who lives and works in Melbourne Australia. Brook’s current body of work explores the connecting point between digital and handmade. Communication and data sharing technologies are referenced, conjuring associations with the codes, language and barcodes that have become omnipresent in our world.
Following his graduation from Victoria College (BA Fine Art) in 1991, Brook has maintained a painting practice as well as working among remote communities in Papua New Guinea for twenty years.
He currently works alongside Australian Indigenous communities in the Central Desert region of Australia and maintains connections with artists and communities in the Pacific.
Brook re-established a working studio practice at the Brewery Artist Lofts while studying in Los Angeles from 2013-2015, and has regularly exhibited since returning to Australia.
His work is included in public and private collections in Australia, USA, Canada, Norway, Africa and Papua New Guinea.
