Michael Brown has continued his “gold-leaf” painting series inaugurated in his first exhibition in September, 2019. The paint application is sculptural, heavy threads of oil paint are squeezed and woven onto 24 ct. gold leaf on canvas. The symmetry of his previous white or blue paintings, which featured the oil paint radiating from the center with centrifugal force is now disjointed with more complex patterns emerging.

I have closely watched Michael’s evolution as an artist beginning when he was an undergrad at SUNY New Paltz. What has been an unfailing constant in his evolving body of work is his incessant inquisitiveness, his need to explore to push his boundaries.
