GABRIELLE K. BROWN + NATHAN HOLLIS: RUMBLE IN THE TWINS: LOVE CONQUERS ALL
Gabrielle K Brown is a multifaceted artist who eagerly and energetically seeks new ways to tell stories through her paintings, sculptures and public murals. Her work retains an object like quality utilising many folk art materials including wood and various paints, retaining a natural and intuitive, seemingly naive yet extremely complex aesthetic. The works dissect the relationship we have with ourselves, our companions, our society and our past with an awe and celebration of nature and the divine, shedding light on how we grow and how we suffer as human beings. Confrontational imagery is often contrasted with uplifting symbols, actions and words - emphasising the extremes of the human condition and experience.
Born in 1994 on the east coast of Canada in New Brunswick, Brown grew up along the river side and mountains which is where she connected to art and began painting and sculpting. She has spent much of her life traveling the world and moving throughout Canada which has always reflected in her work, but has recently moved back home to St John, the oldest city in Canada.
Work has been exhibited at Art Basel Miami, as well as Montreal and New York and LA in the United States.
