Philippa Brown lives and works in Cardiff.

'I make paintings, assemblages and sculptures using easily manipulated, found, discarded and new materials. My approach to manufacturing and making is direct and handmade to develop a fictional response to ideas and concerns.

My working process involves firstly making, choosing and assembling materials in a direct and instinctive way based on drawings and ideas, and then reflecting on these initial results and re-evaluating the results in terms of scale, texture, colour and form. I progress by adding materials and processes, dismantling, removing and remaking over time while looking to establish the character and eccentricity of the work.

These processes and working practices have evolved as a result of an interest in materials, decoration and adornment. I enjoy the dialogue and relationships between the old/new, intentional/accidental, beautiful/ugly, formal/informal.'

Philippa studied fine art at Cardiff Art school, Howard Gardens, Cardiff

The artist was in the following exhibition:
UNIT(e) SUMMER SCHOOL
