Denise Brown’s paintings capture the significance behind universally shared stories and the power within a narrative. This exhibition focuses on the series The Four Seasons, four large canvases exploring the tales tied to the seasons. Though each of the works is a standalone painting, when displayed together, they become reliant on each other to convey a story. Viewers will encounter imagery and symbolism borrowed from myths and fables combined with the artist’s own imagery. Together the four artworks represent a contemplation of human ambition influenced by literature and personal experience.
Brown is currently based in Dallas. She has a Masters of Art from New Mexico State University. Her work is part of the permanent collections of the El Paso Museum of Art, the Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi, TX, the J. Wayne Stark Museum at Texas A&M, the Texas Old Jail Art Center, in Albany, TX, and others.
Denise Brown: Seasons is presented with generous support from the Mellon Foundation, the Texas Commission on the Arts, the El Paso Museum of Art Foundation, and the City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department.
