November 18th - December 3rd
A solo exhibition of works by Colin Brown in the Garden Gallery with works by Eduard Belsky, Arthur Blair and Lys Hansen in the Long Gallery.
Colin Brown studied at Duncan of Jordanstone and is now based in Stonehaven. Prior to this he lived in Europe, including Florence and Dusseldorf. His work is collected all over Europe, Japan and the United States. He has recently exhibited at the New York Art Fair with Panter and Hall.
Through the use of paint, collage, glazes and varnishes Colin’s work “aims to celebrate the spirit of modern culture, the pleasure of finding and using, and the Dada-ist ideal of looking at society in fragments.” Over the last 30 years Colin’s work has evolved considerably, but without departing from his working method: each piece starts with no preconceived idea, but proceeds as a dialogue is formed with the artist in which the balance, structure and rhythm of the piece take shape. The results may at first seem densely packed, chaotic even, but are in fact highly structured compositions that take the viewer on a visual journey that investigates narrative, memory, allegory and human history.
