The Temple Gallery is pleased to present David F. Brown: Paintings and Drawings, opening February 27 and running through March 30. An artist reception will be held at the Temple Gallery on Friday, March 5, 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The Temple Gallery is located in SoCo, the newly designated South of Congress district, at the historic Temple of Music and Art, 330 S. Scott Avenue in downtown Tucson AZ 85701.

Opening with a buoyant palette that acts as a foil to man’s sometimes dark and lonely place in the world, is the solo show by Tucson artist, David F. Brown.  Contradictions abound in his large scale paintings which speak to the depths of the human condition while mining the humor and wherewithal to keep moving forward.  Isolation is a central theme in his smaller intimate drawings on distressed paper where his iconic ladder images and floating man do the difficult work of standing in for what may be everyman

Brown’s work highlights his shifting place in the world, rendering a quirky figure floating in a translucent wash of turquoise in Oceana Incognita, standing under a ladder, a metaphor for self-knowledge and symbol of transition, in Scaling Great Heights and even soaring beyond the physical world of his canvas in Auto-Pilot. Brown’s work is about living fully in the moment, being in it, responding to it, and appreciating it for what it is. Featuring a luscious palette of mango, kiwi and azure blue, and a thoughtful sense of humor, David F. Brown: Paintings and Drawings will leave you with a sense of wonder and delight in his work and the world.
