Out Of Focus: Objects In A New Light
This April sees the work of Stuart Brown donning the walls at Concrete Wardrobe, for a photographic Maker of the Month exhibition.
Glasgow based Brown specializes in photographing the familiar, in new and original ways. Inspired by modern urban landscapes, Scotland and his travels further afield, Brown takes familiar images, and photographs them from a different angle, in an original way, to give a whole new spin on our view of them.
Brown uses a style called 'Bokeh' to create his distinctive abstract photography. ‘Bokeh’ is the method of concentrating an image down to a number of out of focus points of light. Brown’s ‘Glasgow Lights' image takes the iconic so-called 'Squinty Bridge' and renders it, strikingly but still recognisably, to a blur of acid bright circles of coloured light.
A relatively new kid on the block, Brown enjoys experimenting with images, ideas and formats for his work. He produces a range of hand signed greetings cards, larger prints, posters and block mounted wall prints. These laminated fine art prints sit flush against the wall, and come in a wide range of sizes.
Of his exhibition at Concrete Wardrobe, Brown commented, “I have been working with Concrete Wardrobe since October 2012 and am thrilled to have my work featured prominently in one of Edinburgh’s most fun and vibrant retail spaces. Customers will get a taste of my extensive range and exciting new products.”
James Donald, co-owner of Concrete Wardrobe added, “Brown has a very striking style our customers appreciate. His work looks great on any wall, and balances the familiar with the original perfectly. Having Stuart Brown as our April Maker of the Month means we can stock a broader range of his work than we would normally be able to do.”
Stuart Brown’s work is on display at Concrete Wardrobe from 1st to 30th April 2013.
Concrete Wardrobe is open Monday to Saturday 11am to 7pm. (Sunday 12 - 5pm.)
