Exploring the idea of the construction of subdivisions. Abstracted house forms and natural imagery come and go throughout the piece, suggesting the simultaneous process of construction and destruction. Strong overlapping geometric forms offset with organic brushwork. Suggestion of crowded structures interspersed with nature and set below a blue sky. Hints of modernism paired with contemporary techniques such as stenciling.
Mixed-media artist Linnie Brown creates multi-layered artworks using techniques from printmaking, painting, drawing and collage. She is inspired by significant locations and places from her life. Using stencils that she has made from personally-significant locations such as the floorplans of her home or the boundaries of meaningful cities, she traces shapes onto the paper or panel or cuts out their shapes for collages. From there, she works intuitively to build the layers of the piece. Linnie believes that we are all an accumulation of our pasts, and that the memories of our homes, schools and cities that build up over time play a significant role in shaping our individual world views.
