Ian Brown studied at Hornsey College of Art from 1980 – 1983. He was elected an associate member of the Newlyn Society of Arts in 2007 and is currently serving on the committee for the Newlyn Society. He has an extensive cv including exhibitions at Royal West of England Academy, Beardsmore Gallery, Royal Cornwall Museum, Whitechapel Gallery, Brighton University Gallery and London Print Works. He lives and works in West Cornwall.

My work, represents my attempt to use photography in the same way that I used to work with paint. The figures and landscape captured separately and worked together to invent a hybrid space with distinct photographic and painterly qualities.
