Geoff Brown In The Spotlight

Geoff Brown Paintings in the Spotlight

 1st – 30th June 2018

‘Spotlight’ exhibitions at King Street Gallery bring the work of an individual artist’s work together in a specially designated small exhibition room to enable a greater focus on their particular art and what lies behind it.

During month of June the gallery will feature the paintings of Geoff Brown

Geoff Brown  writes:       

In my college days, I went through a process many a student of painting go through, in that I utilised many different styles in a relatively short timescale. At Camberwell I worked in the sculpture school for my first year which had a major impact in the development of my later painting. Post college and during the early seventies I evolved the main characteristics of my present work, which attempts to find a balance between process and image. I have always been concerned with the tension between the actuality of the painting as an object in itself and its representational or suggested imagery. The imagery I use tends to appear non traditional, ordinary, everyday and often random. However, process, selection and sometimes juxtaposition, often makes it look differently. Ideas and preparatory information are recorded in a traditional sketchbook along with first and second hand photographic material built up over a long time frame to which I often return / add to/ modify. As far as the influence of other artists on my own work I would certainly mention the photo realists Richard Estes and Robert Bechtle as well as more historical figures from Piero Della Francesca to Edward Hopper.
