“Mick Brown’s works are not pictures of things but a systematic
reprocessing of materials described as landscape. The work acts as a
diary with a sence of autobiography of living through the textures of
selected and censored world news, the horrors as well as the joys of
being part of the ever- changing and transforming earth and the
participation in its destruction and recreation on the relatively small
scale of the painting”
"Mick’s painting have a narrative element that may evolve during the
‘conversation’ which is the process of the painting. Mick asks the
viewer to rest and consider his painting as the interaction between
materials and processes become a vehicle for reflection.
of mark and colour convey the energy within the paintings. They have an
immediacy that communicates their vital nature and only at the point of a
coherent statement is the work finished."
