Colin Brown has an established and ongoing record of research and creative practice.
Over the past twenty two years he has built up a strong international career profile,
with regular exhibitions of his paintings throughout the UK, Europe and America.

He has spent periods of time living and painting in Europe - including a four month stay
in Florence and four years in Düsseldorf. Brown is now based in Stonehaven on the
north-east coast of Scotland, where he has his studio.

His paintings have received a number of awards, most notably a major Artist's Grant
from The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, New York in 1996.

In his current work Brown pulls together random elements and fragments into closely
controlled compositions. The paintings, which run a fine line between impulse and
calculation, continuously shift context and meaning. Rather than attempting to realise
a predetermined concept, his work follows a specific process which allows the painting
to emerge through its' implementation.
