    2019 - BROWNE

    Roman Italics


    Exhibition dates: 21 November - 8 December 2019
    Opening: Thursday 21 November 2019, 6 - 8pm

    Chris Browne has an ongoing interest in spaces, particularly man-made, and how these inhabited environments influence and shape people’s behaviour and sense of themselves, as individuals and as groups. Elements that contribute to the character of these architectural spaces, such as time, climate, colour, texture and scale are key to the development of the current group of works. Browne’s mode of expression could be classified as contemporary realism, working mostly in oils and various graphic media.

    The William Fletcher Foundation was established in 1985 to honour the memory of the painter William Ernest Maurice Fletcher (1924-83) and to support young artists. In recent years it has been able to award a three-month Residency to the prestigious British School at Rome in every second year. The Rome Residency was first awarded in 2011; Chris Browne was the fourth recipient of the Fletcher Foundation Rome Residency, which allowed him to spend three months in Rome in 2017.
