Paul Robert Brown

Paul R. Brown studied at Bath Academy of Art, Corsham, in the 1960’s.

then from 1979-1981 in the United States.

Subsequently, he worked in the design industry and art schools in the U.K.

A short film about his painting was made by Tony Wilson for Granada T.V.

 

“The paintings examine the interaction between spontaneity and the formal, the dynamic and immediate juxtaposed with the considered making of marks to describe form.

I attempt to maintain vitality and movement within the picture plane and hope the process continues when the finished work is placed in an environment outside the studio.

It is not difficult to resist the natural landscape when painting. However, in Cornwall, the landscape subtly insinuates itself into the work, although I do not wish to reproduce or represent it descriptively.”
