Lives and works in Sydney, Australia
Dean Brown utilises both painting and printmaking to negotiate time and space. By drawing out people from the crowd and depicting them in the void, Brown speaks to the solitary nature of human existence. As we watch Browns figures confront the infinite space alone, we are reminded of our individuality that we often lose sight of amid the chaos of the world.
Brown has completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts Honours at the National Art School. He also holds a Diploma of Design, TAFE, Sydney, and from 2000-07 studied Classical drawing and painting at the Julian Ashton Art School Sydney. Brown’s work has been included in solo and group exhibitions in Australia and internationally. He was awarded the Storrier Onslow National Art School Paris Studio Residency at Cite International des Arts, Paris in 2011. Dean Brown is represented by Chalk Horse in Sydney and Australian Galleries in Melbourne.
