16 x 20
"Brown's Time for Tea is a well-investigated painting, evidencing the artist's interest in light, space, and underlying formal abstraction. The painting moves beyond mere description with actively painted negative shapes and oodles of overlap that lock in the underlying compositional scaffolding. An intricate lattice of the varying pattern also functions to unify this work further. The work's spatial illusion, lost and found forms, and varied edges work to expand the space, implying a sort of "thick air" that deepens the space beyond its shallow confines."
