Art That Makes Itself ...... An exhibition by Brown & Son
Computer Art is older than artist's acrylic paint. Paul Brown
A long overdue show bringing together the work of two artists who represent different generations of digital work. Father and son, Paul Brown and Daniel Brown, purveyors of digital images since 1968.
Recent blockbuster international shows have shone a light on the field of software art and highlighted some of the most cutting edge examples of technology. Welcome though this exposure has been, in the pursut of 'the new' it has been often been overlooked that artists have been working in this field since the 1950s -- who were all cutting edge in their time.
Father and son, Paul Brown and Daniel Brown work with computers as their primary medium for making art. They have a shared interest in manipulating media to create beautifully evolving artificial life forms. Watermans Arts Centre, in Brentford West London will be the first venue for their first ever joint exhibition.
