John C. Brown

John Caldwell Brown

Scotland offers a terrain of monumental, almost mythic proportions that inspires Scottish painter John Brown’s landscape paintings, works begin as landscape and merge into abstract as they become invaded by the spirit of the place.  However, he not content to stay put in a cold climate for long. Brown, is a traveler, who searches and is inspired by colourful cultures and hot climates where he can translate subjects into textural and saturated coloured canvasses.

He will sit and make drawings while traveling and on his return to his studio he will begin the process of making the paintings:   Pip Palmer (2009) describes: They are built up in layers with a collage of fabric and scraps to create an underlying composition, a ‘scaffolding’ over which layers of paints are applied, then scratched back with the end of a brush, fingernails or whatever come to hand before being applied again to produce a textured, almost visceral picture surface.   

Brown admires Rauschenberg and de Kooning both prime movers of New York Abstract Expressionism, acknowledging, also an empathy with Howard Hodgkin’s who works to capture the essence of his subject.
