Ephemerata | a timeline of creation and change
works by Deborah Brown
The highly textural paintings (12×12 and 8×8) have occupied my impulsive hands for several years (2008-2020). What started as an inquisitive exploration of materials and depth became the challenge of transforming a flat surface into a three-dimensional abyss. An additional challenge was to transform the restrictive visual enclosure of the square to a dynamic metamorphic journey. Primal materials such as earth pigments, charcoal and volcanic ash reiterate the grit of progression, stasis and ultimate demise. — Deborah Brown
Deborah Brown studied at the San Francisco Art Institute and has exhibited her work throughout the United States. She is intensely private so you will not unearth her presence on Social Media; not a philistine, just a hermit. Having spent considerable time in Alaska, she now continues her art practice in her recently adopted home of Gloucester MA.
I see my work as visceral and evocative, an embedded imprint on the limbic brain, relentlessly touched, molded, scraped and scattered with earthbound dust. And with a certain threatening charm to engage and provoke the viewer.Deborah Brown
