Surreal multicolored pictures painted on wood slices by Adrian Landon Brooks

Austin, Texas-based artist Adrian Landon Brooks uses wood slices as canvasses for absolutely stunning surrealistic paintings. Her ethereal creations and their mystical atmosphere, which sometimes accidentally and intentionally look like ancient Egypt pictures, shape a whole new universe full of colors and symbolism.

Historically, any imagery in my work that looked similar to any one culture or place was coincidental… I wasn’t always aware of where I was visually drawing from. Most recently, I was asked repeatedly if was influenced by Egyptian artwork, which I thought was interesting because I never had any direct interest or meaningful time with it. I decided to lean into that a bit with one of my latest paintings (“Siren Song”) and see how a more deliberate approach would benefit my process.
