About

A solo exhibition of recent works by Susan Brown at Mandell’s Gallery, Norwich 7 March – 28 March 2020.

Join us to celebrate the opening of Susan Brown’s exhibition.

Sat 7 Mar 2020 12pm–3pm

This exhibition showcases Susan Brown’s paintings in mixed media with a focus on two series ‘Structure and Landscape’ and ‘Architecture’ Reflecting Susan’s interest in the landscape and mans relationship with it.

The Structure and Landscape series will explore the life cycle of our landscapes, growth and decay, fragility and power, the complexities and energies found in our landscapes.

Her style is unique and innovative. She manages to handle her subjects in a spontaneous manner, creating bold, lively paintings while confidently retaining control over her medium.

We are very pleased to welcome Susan’s solo exhibition to Mandell’s Gallery. This exhibition will feature large canvases and some smaller works from her Structure in the landscape series and works from her architecture series including some of Norwich.

Susan Brown studied Art and Design at Huddersfield and went on to graduate from Leeds Polytechnic in 1979 with a degree in Interior Architecture. Susan has won many awards and has shown in many open exhibitions nationally and internationally, including the RA Summer Exhibition. Her work is held in various public and private collections.

‘Looking at this work it seems to be poles apart – different subjects, different colours, different scale, different narrative but…

The very existence of life, the cycle of growth and decay the interrelationship and the interdependence of the natural world and man’s relationship with the environment are a phenomena that hold a fascination for me.

The natural world has a complicated form and structure, a set of precedents that create and guide its existence, and it is this order that is often echoed in man-made structures.

It is the borrowing of formulas from nature and used by man to create his environment that informs my work, I look for the connection between the two and find it often in plain sight.’
