This exhibition is an overview of two decades of Nigel Brown’s major painting concerns and subjects. Brown’s distinctive works are a blend of symbolic and expressionistic approaches harbouring a deeply felt social conscience.
In the accompanying catalogue, poet/painter Gregory O’Brien outlines the points of issue Brown tackles. These include puritanism, racism, sexism, the nuclear threat and - in the affirmative - environmentalism, biculturalism and ‘true’ democracy. He then adds that the points might also refer to the many out-of-the-way places the artist has lived.
