American artist Dustin Brown (b.1995) paints the difficult scenes we see when we trawl the depths of our memory. Through the subtle aesthetic of milky gradients and pastel objects, Brown references moments of tough transition in the making of identity. Each painting comes to terms with life by making something positive out of it. Recurring symbols in his work include a yellow flower, human appendages, and brown boots. Each with only four limbs, fingers, toes, or petals, the artist draws life in each object related to one another. Dustin Brown’s painting is an exploration of the human’s hunt for purpose and the obstacles that make us question our desire. In his exploration Dustin labels the ups and downs of a person finding their way with his signature florid markers. Dustin Brown currently lives and works in Charlotte, North Carolina and has recently exhibited in Los Angeles, Hong Kong, and Beirut.
