Steve Turner is pleased to present Return To Sender, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based Mitsuko Brooks that will feature collaged, typed or handwritten letters that Brooks sent to friends, colleagues and artist-heroes over the months leading up to the exhibition. The letters are written or typed on repurposed book covers that have a montage of postage stamps, labels and postal marks. Functioning as postcards, they relate to the rich history of mail art, collage and assemblage. Her communications, personal and candid, convey a sober and poignant self-portrait.
Mitsuko Brooks received an MFA in painting and drawing from UCLA (2017) and a BFA from Cooper Union (2005). Brooks is a member of The Asian American Women Artists Association and attended The Oxbow School in Napa Valley, California. Her work has been exhibited at The San Francisco Art Institute; California College of Arts, San Francisco; Smack Mellon, New York and Rush Arts Gallery, New York. This is her first solo exhibition at Steve Turner.
