A group presentation of gallery artists & guests















Yuill/Crowley, Sydney

14 November - 21 December 2019





In this new work, Browne fuses flattened & reflective surfaces with allusions to the aperture and the ever-present void. In contrast to his more familiar explorations of uncanny nature and the abject, here he deepens an ongoing parallel line of inquiry (most evident in his previous graphic works) into the grain of urban texture via careful framing and shallow spatial illusionism. Taking everyday happenchance encounters with the 'real' on a determinably and increasingly abstract journey, these new works suture spare compostions appropriated from an observed world to more painterly and gestural ends, delivering us into an emblematic and fictive realm. The reflective character of silver pigment extends across a number of paintings, reminding viewers of Browne's perennial interest in the phenomena of light, located here alongside a theatrics of scale, embracing the intimacy of anecdotal detail and more indeterminate and immersive atmospherics.

McClelland Gallery + Sculpture Park, Victoria

31 May - 6 September 2015


"Elemental features a series of significant works that explore the patterns, forces and systems of nature, and humanity's impact upon these. This collection of works draws inspiration from and represents the natural world in contemplative, confronting and insightful ways. Some draw from the shapes and formations of which nature is comprised, offering intuitive interpretations of the environment. Others provide abstract perspectives of expansive landscapes from viewpoints unattainable by the human eye. Many seek to alter our perceptions of our natural surrounds through documentary, scientific or surreal approaches, revealing the unsustainable impacts of contemporary societies on our ecosystems. Elemental highlights the beauty, force and fragility of the earth's systems, encouraging a reverence of our intrinsic relationship to the environment.

This exhibition is drawn principally from the McClelland permanent collection, with the addition of several key works on private loan. Significantly, a number of works are being presented for the first time since their acquisition, each expanding upon McClelland's core focus of art and nature."


Featured artists include Narelle Autio, Peter Blizzard, Mike Brown, Andrew Browne, Augustine Dall'Ava, Peter Datjin, John Davis, Juan Ford, Angelina George, John Gollings, Janet Laurence, Akio Makigawa, John Mawurndjul, Anton McMurray, Dorothy Napangardi, Jasmine Targett, Neil Taylor, Wukun Wanambi, Pedro Wonaeamirri, Timothy Wulanjbirr, Gulumbu Yunupingu.

Andrew Browne 'SIX INTAGLIOS'

Australian Print Workshop Gallery, Fitzroy Victoria

Review in The Age

The Melbourne Review



"...Andrew received the 'Australian Print Workshop Collie Print Trust Fellowship' for 2013, and has been working with the APW and its highly skilled team including senior printer Martin King and Simom White, developing a new suite of six large-scaled intaglio's from copper plates combining techniques such as drypoint, aquatint, sugar-lift and spit-bite as well as air-brush applications. An exhibition of these works is being shown at the Australian Print Workshop Gallery, Fitzroy in May/June 2013".



A plate in preparation...    





An interview/profile by Owen Craven appears in the new edition of ARTIST PROFILE magazine - Issue 22 - out March 2013





in the April 2013 (Issue 3) edition of VAULT magazine, Sam Leach discusses Andrew's painting 'Lair' 2012 (below), as well as the work and commentary of a number of other artists working in a broadly 'realist' vernacular in his essay 'Realistic Representation in Australian Art'.
