Peter Brown - Untitled (Plumed Figure) - 2014 - acrylic on paper

New York and Colorado artist Peter Brown paints richly textured, multi-layered acrylics on wood panels that oscillate between abstraction and concreteness, realism and fantasy. Inspired by the rock faces and canyons near Lyons, CO, Brown seeks to develop depth and space for the eye to play with and explore. His process mirrors the geological by building layer upon layer only to expose them, as erosion, intrusion and fracturing reveal the earth’s strata. The relation of paint and the evolving narrative brings such elements as fire, wind, and water into play as well as indistinct figures and architectural forms.
