DESCRIPTION

Brown is primarily a figurative artist, many of his paintings involve formal examinations of relations of scale and depth. Space in Brown's canvases is often irrational, an almost dream-like landscape where scale and distance fail to cohere. Brown's collages of memory images and photographic records converge juxtapositions - confounding representation and abstraction and testing the boundaries between pictorial modes.
