Ken Browne: “Through my work I try to create a sense of place without a specific location in mind. A process of layering invokes the elements of land, sea and sky. Derived from memory and emotions I am bringing them back together in my paintings, holding on to the chance accidents and spontaneous marks which are integral to my technique without losing the overall compositional intention, I balance between habitual mark making and recognising happy accidents when they occur.”
Ken Browne: “This process of layering is not only physical – there is a darker edge to my paintings, a deeper meaning that lurks in the shadows. They are not only abstract landscapes but “inscapes”, bringing the outside and inside world together, merging places with emotions and letting the viewer follow me on my emotional journey while experiencing their own that is what my art is about.”
Artist: Ken Browne
The Doorway Gallery @thedoorwaygallery – www.thedoorwaygallery.com exhibits fine art paintings, amongst other works, from a selection of both Irish born and International artists, who are individually recognised for their unique talent and contribution to art.
The primary focus of the Doorway Gallery is to support Artists in achieving international recognition for their work. This is achieved through their presence at a number of annual international art fairs at which a selection of art works is promoted.
There is an independent ethos to The Doorway Gallery. Patrons are encouraged to develop their own concepts in appreciation of art. This is evident through the gallery’s regularly hosted ‘Solo Shows’. Such events are organised in an effort to promote the artist.
