DORIS BROWN

A Moment in Time
May 20 – June 9, 2016
Reception: Thursday, May 26, 2016 6-8 PM

Doris Brown creates meticulous yet wondrous paintings that pull from nature, fiction, and spirituality to inspire her audience. Brown uses her chosen medium of acrylic to achieve crisp lines, smooth textures, and the kind of precise color mixing that is only possible in an expert’s hands. She portrays figures, plants, and animals with a realism that goes beyond mere depiction and moves into the realm of celebration. Brown paints subjects that are beautiful, in tableaux that are thought-provoking.

Though her style is undeniably realistic, Brown employs her aesthetic to depict improbable or wholly otherworldly scenes. Her paintings are often featuring angels and classical characters from operas. She drops the background out of her scenes, selectively placing a tree here or a plant there to complicate the work’s silhouette. By combining text and images in some works, Brown enters an entirely different genre altogether: she tells entire stories with her pieces with an original visual language that still leaves room for the viewer’s imagination.

Brown was born in Wolhusen, Switzerland and today lives in Burg, Switzerland, where she works as a teacher for disadvantaged children.
