Philippa Brown, Boom boom!. acrylic and foam on nylon, 2017
Philippa Brown makes paintings, assemblages and sculptures using easily manipulated, found, discarded and new materials. She takes an approach to manufacturing and making that is direct and handmade developing both autobiographical and fictional narratives in tandem.
'I am interested in the ways in which femininity and individuality is expressed through everyday micro acts of resistance to social and phallocentric norms. I am interested in the relationship between artist and object, and exploring the pathos, humor and instability inherent in everyday life and tasks through mixing both biographical and fictional narratives. My current work explores the use of symbolism and different methods of documenting behaviour and actions to consider identity within societal norms and heirarchies. I am interested in the sculptural possibilities and relationships between objects, body and space and the essential interconnectedness between marginalised, maligned and other species.'
Philippa Brown is currently studying for an MFA. She has recently exhibited at Oriel Blodau Bach, ArcadeCardiff, Spit and Sawdust, and took part in BEEP painting prize 2018, Swansea college of Art, and Introductions 2017 at Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn, New York.
