Original drawing in Indian ink and red ink on BFK Rives Imperial sized paper.

"This is another work in my 'Large Ink Drawing Series' that have been created while studying my Masters Degree. This piece has a personal exploration of being back home at my grandparents house, elements from the garden and within the home. Its a personal piece that works well in that the composition is minimal but they meanings behind the symbolic drawings have deeper meanings."

David Iain Brown’s work is evocative of Germano Celant’s vision of Arte Povera and the idea of the artist as an individual devoted to the “self-projection of human activity”. His work involves a performative reflection on the creative process. Often using found objects from his own and other artists’ studios, he explores the artistic process, and in turn, the life of artists. Brown seemingly comments on artistic intention, through the use of reclaimed objects from other artists’ studios, and through a process of layering (and thus erasing) of his own work. This process of layering, simultaneously hides and reveals his artistic process through blankets of colour and intricate layers of line. Through this technique the work communicates a play between past and present. Brown’s eclectic use of material produces a dynamic and tactile aesthetic, exploring the depths, and indeed meaning, of artistic creation.
