Artist Peter Brown
The exhibition, entitled rust | forms, deals with Decay. Waste. Detritus… Recycle. Reprocess. Regenerate… “The sculptural wall hangings and floor pieces incorporate and repurpose found, discarded, household, industrial materials/objects as much as possible. The materials interact and speak to each other, while shape, texture and size dictate the final outcome. With a few exceptions, the assemblage of each piece progresses in my process without knowing the obstacles or conclusions.”
Peter Brown currently resides in Pine Meadow, CT and received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts (BFA) in 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional design from the Hartford Art School. After graduating, he took his sculptural skills towards jobs in construction, then changed course and applied his love of photography towards the commercial advertising photography field. After apprenticing with two Hartford area photographers for 5 years, he ventured out on his own and partnered with John Woodruff to form Woodruff/Brown Photography in 1985.
