427 Chestnut Street

Ground Floor Gallery is delighted to have a solo exhibition by one of its original studio mates, Amanda Joy Brown. When I recently found Amanda pounding nails into the frames she had made to stretch her finished canvases to, there was a rhythm to the sound I wish I had recorded. It sounded much like her paintings: skilled, purposefully repetitive lines breaking free of their “constructed boundaries.”

In this series of paintings, a foundation of flat shapes and colors provides structure for dense, free-flowing lines. Values and colors create context for the line work, hiding and revealing figures as well as creating groupings, hierarchy and homogeny.

Originally from Fort Worth, TX, via Essexville, MI, Amanda Joy Brown is a contemporary painter/installation artist who works out of her studio in Nashville, TN. Studying for a BFA in Graphic Design at Harding University, Brown became interested in painting her sophomore year. She graduated with a Bachelor’s in 2006, and went on to earn her MFA in the painting program at the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Brown’s work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally with various shows in Michigan, North Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Switzerland and France. She has been published by Carnegie Hall. Amanda Joy Brown currently shows at Parker Art Gallery on Saint Simons Island, GA, and Galerie Ortus in Bonnieux, France.
