Victoria Browne Biography

Victoria Browne combines traditional printing techniques with digital innovation. Referencing historical public collections, in both her chosen process and her concepts she attempts to maintain a link with the past while very much considering ideas of the present and ultimately the future.

The ‘Training Nature’ series, which includes the prints shown here, was inspired by the shapes that appear in topiary. Her aim with these works is to highlight human intervention in nature and our desire to ‘improve’ these living plants by pruning and shaping. The configurations she’s created have a sturdy appearance, giving them a connection to the human body, and the fact that each piece in an edition is slightly different to the next due to the hand printing process emulates this, thus extending Browne’s allegations to reference mankind and our constant attempt to manipulate and control.

The patterns that make up these semi-abstract shapes, which despite seeming so grounded in appearance are always floating with space all around them, draw upon English 19th century textile designer William Morris’ Arts and Crafts influence on the home. The prints are reduction linoleum relief prints, in which the technique relies on the gradual removal of the block to overlay multiple colours. Browne’s sculptural approach to printmaking involves manipulating the viscosity of ink and registration to create flux within the colourful foliage, leaving evidence of the hand and a nod to the folklore of craft.

Born in 1978, Browne gained her MA in printmaking at the University of West of England, Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen, Norway and École supérieure des beaux-arts de Marseille, France. The founder of London-based KALEID editions, an artist-led programme of exhibitions, participatory events and book launches, Browne's practice extends to artists’ books. She is a visiting lecturer in the UK and Norway, and facilitates printmaking and digital media workshops in London. Browne’s work is held in public collections at the Tate, V&A Museum (who have 'Twinkle' in their Prints and Drawings collection), and MoMA (USA), The National Art Library, Bristol City Museum and Bergen Council. In 2013 she was nominated by Gill Saunders, Senior Curator of Prints at the V&A Museum and shortlisted for The Arts Foundation Printmaking Fellowship. She has had a number of solo shows in London and Italy in the past three years and been part of many group shows including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition. She has recently been awarded an Arts Council grant for 2014.

ABOUT THIS ARTIST
February 7th 2014
The works in Victoria Browne’s ‘Training Nature’ series immediately catch the eye because it’s unlikely you’ve ever seen anything like them before. My initial thought when I first saw Donut was that it did indeed look like a donut (I hadn’t seen the title at this point) formed of a swarm of bees which had huddled together to make an almost-perfect spherical shape with a hole in it.
RECENT NEWS ARTICLES
December 15th 2017
Exactly twenty years ago the Royal Academy opened a now infamous exhibition of British contemporary art titled ‘Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection’ - and a sensation it certainly was! An exhibition that triggered industry backlash, public criticism, and mass media attention, ‘Sensation’ also launched the exhibiting artists into the spotlight of the international art world.

Miami Basel opened its doors in 2002 following a postponed start in 2001. December was the chosen month as - the thinking went - the winter sun in Miami would draw in the shivering art collectors from the drizzly northern climes.

DO YOU HAVE A DAMIEN HIRST TO SELL?
Valium
With two major exhibitions during the Venice Biennale, 2017 has been a year which has increased the awareness of Damien Hirst. With Hirst still actively releasing new print editions, many collectors focus on his earlier work from 2000 and before, such as Valium, Lysergic Acid Diethylamide (LSD), Opium, Beautiful, Galactic, Exploding Screenprint (Spin) and Painting-by-Numbers.

If you have one of the above prints that you are potentially interested in selling, please do get in touch with us via the Contact page, which you can find here.
