Lifetime Piling Up. Visual accumulations of objects and experience.
Using images of his own work, personal history and research, Edinburgh-based artist John Brown will discuss how he uses the continual build-up of experience and scrap materials to fabricate large installations of drawn and painted multiples.
He will discuss the process of using the combinations and juxtapositions of various visual histories and influences to create new forms and narratives with the hope that these might go some way to reflect how the accumulation of ‘stuff’ can at once be compulsive and disastrous.
