Detail of: Road from Kelvedon Hall 2 Blue Evening – February 2018

Nicky Brown’s work examines the close relationship between man and the landscape in which he lives and works and the transformational effects of the seasons with their associated rural activities on both the form of the landscape and the quality of the light surrounding it. Throughout her career this relationship has connected all her work, from homeless figures gathered around a brazier in New York, figures in landscapes burning fields of stubble or moorland, or working the fields in Rajastaan, to her present body of work: The Glory of the Landscape, a study of East Anglian landscapes through the seasons.

Working mainly in charcoal and oil, Nicky studied at Central School of Art and the Royal Academy and has had several successful one man and group shows both in NY and the UK. She is also kept busy with a number of private commissions and was a prize winner in the Singer Friedlander/ Sunday Times water colour competition in 1991. She is married, with five grown up children and lives in Essex.
