Barbara Brown

Brown’s current work - photographs of ephemeral compositions of natural materials - are created as visual meditations in and of the landscape. Her work deals with memory and the passage of time, referencing the changing seasons and the inevitable decline of all things, as observed in the garden. Through her artistic practice she is renegotiating an ancient relationship with the earth, one that finds a contemporary praxis in new physical and psychic relationships with the land.

"In pursuing this body of work, I have come to understand that it is the work of each generation to learn and perhaps to re-discover common plants and in so doing to become re-enchanted with the world, beginning in our own backyards."

- B. Brown
