Ann Marie Brown

Ann Marie Brown has been doing her residency in painting in Helsinki, Finland this year, with a studio at Aalto University through the Finnish Artists Union (they reserve one for foreign artists).
"I've been telling the history of Finland through metaphor and symbols."
Ann-Marie Brown has been exhibiting her work in solo and group shows in Canada and the United States since 1995. Her method involves the use of encaustic and oil on canvas. By using overlapping layers to impart a sense of motion and texture, the built up layers in her paintings obscure and fragment the figures underneath. The resulting effect is revelatory as the whole of the painting highlights a single glance or a gesture. According to Brown, a piece is complete when it fully articulates a single moment in time.
