NEWEST COLLECTION

THE MOUNTAIN & THE WOMB

This series is about the “Life, death, life” cycle that Dr. Estes talks about in her book “Women Who Run With Wolves” which is the cycle that everything has a beginning, end, and then a beginning again. Similar to a game of “jump rope” the more we can embrace jumping into this cycle knowing it will repeat itself the easier the game becomes and also alluding to the fact that it can only be played if you are a willing participant.

ABOUT MARGARET

Brown is a Visual artist based in Nashville, Tennessee. She grew up in a small Bay town area called Daphne, Alabama. During college is when she discovered her passion for psychology, culture, and nature. Brown’s life experiences as a former apparel designer and art educator has further influenced her artwork that creates an immediate impression and lasting influence.

She is also the founder of The Creative Unblock "helping you solve your own problems through the power of creativity". A company that focuses on using the right hemisphere of the brain to help calm the mind and get unblocked using creativity. 

ABOUT THE WORK

I attempt to paint subtle hidden truths of the human condition by unlearning, excavating and remembering these truths which are personal yet collective. I am fascinated by the many layers of ourselves and the process of what we choose to reveal or not, to ourselves and one another. Discovering both sides of the spectrum, both conscious and unconscious, in a constant process of learning to “unlearn” coping mechanisms and subconscious programming created early in life.

I show this process through intentional layering, mark making and specific color choices. I use transparent layers to represent what we reveal to others or ourselves and opaque for concealment. I push the boundaries of value to show both aspects of our consciousness, embracing all to further evolve as individuals. With the intentional use of various marks I communicate the dynamic and remarkable human condition that is always changing and ever expanding.

"I am so moved by these paintings of yours, truly. I actually ended up gifting (mine) to my parents. My mom fell in love with it - always commenting on it and staring at it when she'd come over to our house, so I gave it to her. She put it in their bedroom, she loves it." 

                                      - Emily

"I really, really love the painting! I hung it up above my desk, and I might keep it here at the office for a while. I've really enjoyed it today - spent a lot of time looking at it!"          

                                 - Erika

"Did you ever get art you loved SO much, you feel like you need to buy better lighting and furniture for it? This is my Mother's Day gift!!! and the best part is we knew and loved the artist before we knew and loved her art."              

                                   - Carole
