Encaustic and oil on canvas. A selection of paintings from several bodies of work.
" Ann-Marie Brown's paintings shift between form and formlessness. She captures a moment of stillness, an image seen, sensed, in 'the blink of an eye'. She paints from the eyes of compassionate experience, witnessing life in it's raw infallible beauty. Her paintings explore the mercurial duality of existence; creation and disintegration. This simple circularity and the tension of its continuous change is captured through her layer upon layers of paint and wax. The effect is mesmerizing and as one moves before her paintings the figures also appear to change, follow, revealing the unsettling tension of form becoming and its arrival."-Joanna Mackenzie-Enga -curator Gibsons Public Art Gallery
"Brown's art is like that: the longer you look, the less certain you are of what you see"--Joseph Rosen-Blank Spaces magazine December 2018
