About Kenneth Browne

Bio

Born July 6th 1982 in the town of Hempstead, New York, I later migrated to Maryland and was introduced to the arts at the Maryland Summer Center for the Arts at Salisbury University. I attended Salisbury University receiving a BA in 2-D Studio under the guidance of Gary Brotman and Jinchul Kim. After graduation I moved to Brooklyn to study with Linda Francis and Ross Neher while earning his MFA. Recently I have been included in “New Contemporary American Realist Biennial” at the Fort Wayne Museum of art and had a solo show entitled “From the Crowd” at Bishop’s Stock Gallery.

Statement

My work would best be described as realism though it is also deeply rooted in narrative ideas. Using the narrative style I create cinematic scenes that focus on New York and the little bubbles that are created within it. These range from snapshots from the lives of people living in the multiplying condos to the bar scene to specialized niches like the underground world of burlesque. These ideas are being, or will be, explored in series' that are interrelated and develops a sense of familiarity with the different levels of New York.
The images are an over- analyzed documentation of small section of my experience within the New York scene after a night on the town. These images are developed from photographs allowing for an examination of every aspect of the different scenes to help better guide the development of the paintings. Each painting becomes a computation of the different photographs and drawings to create the experience close how the scene was witnessed or imagined. The places and people, who I meet and interact with on my many outings, become the sources for the paintings.
Having recently become infatuated with the New York Neo-Burlesque scene, I wanted to show my interest in the world. Starting with the performer’s confidence and excitement in their performances to their elaborate costumes became my inspiration for these works. Focusing on the performer and their costumes I started creating drawings and paintings from the perspective of the audience. The drawings focused entirely on the performer and her costume negating their surrounding while the paintings recreate the idea of them on stage.
