Andrew Browne

Mysterious and highly sophisticated, the stylised paintings of artist Andrew Browne are based on his continuing observation of the world through photography.  While his recent works are more descriptive than in the past, they continue his fascination with selective vision and the nature of seeing.  Using photographs as notations, Browne captures the banal and ordinary and makes strange the familiar.
