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.

Photographer Seton Smith is interested in concepts of how architecture and environment affect people psychologically. Her images invite people to become very conscious of their surroundings by presenting work that concentrates on the formal aspects of a given space, such as colour, line and perspective.

In our fast-paced, ever-changing world, where it seems we can barely keep up with the rapid development of technology, Jacky Tsai, an artist whose work juxtaposes the old and new, past and present, east and west, quite aptly explores the theme of AI technology in his new lenticular print edition - Artificial Intelligence.
