Artist
Linnie Brown Lehi, Utah

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.

    Artist Statement

    Using places in my life as a motif, I create layered artworks with collage, paint, printmaking, and drawing that reference the complexity and influence of a location. I am interested in the idea that we are an accumulation of our past. All of the experiences we have had in specific homes, schools, cities, and other locations uniquely merge together to influence the way we currently view and engage in life.

    I produced my most recent body of work with a very straight-forward strategy: cutting out shapes from significant places in my life, assembling them together, and then responding to the resulting image. In this process, lines and marks become my own personal routes, connecting me again and again with specific geographic areas. This exploration sometimes signifies literal paths of travel, and, at other times, charts the virtual or emotional connection of my thoughts.
