Born Buenos Aires in 1969, Argentina, Eric Brown lives and works in New York.
Brown’s minimalist painting, sculpture and works on paper typically draw from architectural plans of public works such as airports, runways, bridges and highways, communicating a personal exploration of what it means to be in constant motion and transition. His paintings, for example, depict both geographical places and states of mind through the uniform layering of pictorial devices that hint at the urban landscape depicted underneath. Rendering the painterly image nearly obsolete, Brown diminishes representational value and preciousness, imbuing the picture plane with states of mind instead.
Brown has had solo exhibitions at Hallwalls, Buffalo, NY; the Calvin Klein Flagship Store and Goff + Rosenthal in New York, NY; and Project Room, Philadelphia, PA. His work has been included in exhibitions at Ventana 244, The Bogart Salon, Davidson Contemporary and Josee Bienvenu Gallery in New York; Helen Day Art Center, Stowe, VT; Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Rockland, ME; Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia, PA; Queens Museum, NY and at Artforum Berlin.
