Patternscapes…opens in April!

Appalachian Red, 46×48″, Acrylic on canvas

Patternscapes, a solo exhibition by one of GfG’s studio artists, Amanda Joy Brown, opens during the next art crawl, Saturday, April 6th, 6-8pm. Brown’s incorporation of line, texture and color, to interpret remembered environments, gives a fresh edge to the tradition of landscape painting. Patternscapes will be on view, by appointment, through April.

Bio
Amanda Joy Brown studied painting at Harding University and earned her MFA in the painting program at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited in several countries and is included in private and public collections internationally.

Statement
The focus on landscape in my painting practice developed from a desire to both be present in my surroundings as well as capturing experiences as I remember them. These landscape-based pieces honor the abstraction of memory, in the shorthand of shapes and textures, and emulate both the simplicity and complexity of memory. Studying the combinations of color and texture within a landscape, I work with a medium that lends a 3D element to the surfaces, creating a heightened range of visual resonance through dimensional line.
