Brown started as a print maker, depicting colourful illustrations of mundane objects from his surrounding within the daily life, but gradually evolved to painting and developed a new language of abstraction. While experimenting with diﬀerent textures, colours and shapes, the artist tries to loose control over the work, resulting in an unique outcome. David lain Brown starts from one element and progresses freely with many layers and a variety of paint media, not only he adds materials to the canvas, in some areas Brown deconstructs his own work to give more space to the underlying structures. Every layer is as important since it leaves a trail of narrative through the creation process and adds more depth to the texture.
