JOHN BROWN RSW  SOLO EXHIBITION  15 – 29 SEPTEBER 2019.

John Brown’s seductive paintings are brief evocative descriptions of the real life scenes that catch his eye

as he travels; whether in his native Scotland, Cuba,Turkey or Vietnam his sketchbook is always close at

hand. Back in the studio the enjoyable process of bringing to life his travelling sketches begins. Paint

and mixed media materials are carefully considered and methodically layered on the canvas, sanded

back and layered again to create the surface from which will eventually emerge the painting. An

accomplished colourist, his palette and compositions, whether abstract or figurative, reveal an exquisite

sensitivity to the light, space and form of his various chosen locations.
