“AWAKENING” RAW: Natural Born Artists

Awakening_Beth_Brown_artistgraphic_flat

Well, here’s another first. I am FINALLY featured in an exhibit in The Charm City!!!! (Unaffiliated with MICA). I was scouted for Baltimore’s RAW exhibit/competition “AWAKENING” to be held at The Creative Alliance on Feb. 6th, 2014 from 8pm-10pm. RAW is a little hard to describe since it has such a multifaceted mission…so I recommend you read about it here. It currently operates in 60 cities across the U.S., Australia, Canada, and the U.K. It can be described as a competition, promotional tool for emerging artists, pop-up gallery, and fancy cocktail party. The competition aspect relies on votes. The more votes you get from each event, the more likely your chances are of representing your city in a giant RAW show in LA. In the mean time, I need to sell tickets to cover my promotional supplements and archival framing (and baby, that sh*t ain’t cheap). The tickets are less expensive if you buy them through my profile at their site so please pretty pretty please please buy tickets HERE, please. Thank you :)

SYSTEMATIC at Manifest

systematic

Well. It’s finally happened. My very first interstate gallery show…!!!!! “SYSTEMATIC: Art By or About Systems” opens January 24th and closes February 21st at Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio. I was selected out of 129 entries and two of my drawings (twelve of the other artists only had one piece selected…not to brag or anything ;) ) were selected out of 289 entries. I wont be able to attend the opening seeing as how I spent my plane ticket/Xmas money on professional archival framing, so if you’re in Ohio, please let me how the show looks and take plenty of pictures for me! There should be a published book/catalog for sale after the fact, so I’ll keep everyone posted on that. For additional information about SYSTEMATIC, please visit the link here and scroll down to the third post.

Visual News Article

IMG_2901

Justin Crowe (professional fine artist, writer, and Dizbe entrepreneur) has written an incredibly flattering article for Visual News titled “Micro-Landscape Ink Drawings Inspired by Sound: Beth Brown” about my work. I’m pretty sure no one has ever described my work in such a ruminative and vivid (not to mention really really fun and exciting) way. I am deeply honored.Dizbe is a creative archive to discover, meet, and collect the most exciting working artists. It provides the tools to learn about new artists and to share the work of these emerging/established artists. Here is the article for your reading pleasure.

“Micro-Landscape Ink Drawings Inspired by Sound: Beth Brown”
11.19.2013 , Posted by

These drawings are like taking a microscope to a night club and observing the crawling skin of a rave dancer. Before you read on click ‘Play’ on the sound piece below to set the mood. These incredibly detailed ink drawings are physical manifestations of Beth Brown’s sound art. They look like an iTunes visualizer being used in a slightly darker sci-fi universe. The nonobjective shapes embody a wonderfully dense articulated structure and imply movement: slithering, morphing, collapsing, as a part of some strange foreign lifecycle on micro scale. Beth Brown builds accumulated sensory texture expressed through micro-landscapes.
In these ink drawings Beth uses ‘line’ as a simple building block to create complex compositions. Repetitive curved lines imply a topographical lift and tightly packed lines imply density. This developed visual language allows Beth to describe three dimensions of information on a two dimensional canvas. Many photos below are actually detail images from giant complex compositions. The smaller clips allow us to appreciate the craft and tedium that make up these incredible abstract landscapes.
It is a beautiful phenomenon when an artist may simply exist in order to manifest a creative mission. Crafting an artistic aesthetic is something that comes slowly and is nurtured over time. When an artist reaches this point of purity their style is recognizable across all creative outlets such as artwork, personality, values, and lifestyle. Beth Brown rides an elegant wave of creative expression with a mission that is successfully iconic across mediums.”
