About

Julian Brown is an artist who creates visual kaleidoscopes in an array of colourful patterns, grids and curves. His playful, folk art inspired work draws upon his childhood visions with a poignant awareness of his Polish heritage and a particular love for the wonder of the paper cut-out craft of Wycinakni, introduced to him by his mother.   His adult self ponders, deliberates and considers this time. When he paints it is like a fleeting moment for the child to surface and the process of painting intuitively evolves, live and fluid.   Brown indicates that this work is also about the relationship of colour and breaking down systems where he might teeter on the edge of success or failure.   His work has a certain daring as he experiments and pushes boundaries, sometimes working canvases with layer upon layer of gesso until the surface is almost a mirror to then daringly sweep paths of colour on top, every move risking ruin of the perfection he has achieved, somehow so reminiscent of a child trying to perfect a new skill.  Much like the imaginations of a childhood game, the work has many possibilities and could lead to any number of endings.
