Brooke Holve lives and works in Sebastopol, CA. A visual artist for three decades, her art practice has taken her through explorations of calligraphy, bookbinding, printmaking, digital technology and poetry. Interested in combining mediums, she draws from each discipline to make mixed media works, installations, constructions, and artist books. Her probing work investigates culture, memory, place, language, time and natural phenomena. She often looks for materials and objects that hold a history. The interplay of materials and methods inform her process; and overtime expose possibilities for shaping form. She often attempts to put together disparate ‘things’ that have come apart, but were once traditional structures used to preserve, protect and hold.
