Ken Browne

Ken Browne’s new paintings offer a uniquely innovative approach to the landscape genre. In these highly evocative works, landscape becomes the vehicle through which the artist explores the realms of human emotion and the subconscious.
These meticulously crafted abstract paintings were inspired by the artists’ experience of different Irish landscapes.

These are not specific landscapes but a synthesis of natural scenes that the artist has beheld in the past and which have left an indelible mark on his imagination.

The upper zone of each painting is dominated by skilfully-rendered, turbulent skyscapes. While these skies are impressively Turneresque in their grandeur, they are also unmistakeably Irish.

As the painting descends there is a gradual abandonment of realistic description in favour of areas of darkness where something deeper, more powerful, and perhaps more sinister dwells. With their blacks and browns, deep reds and golds, these lower zones are admirably reminiscent of some of the greatest practitioners of tenebrismo such as Caravaggio or Velazquez.

It is this interplay between bright skyscapes at the top and shadowy realms at the bottom that marks these out as truly original works.
