Peacock Visual Arts are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Gordon Brown. Gordon worked for many years at Peacock Visual Arts and was greatly respected by all who knew him. Our immediate thoughts are with his family – Margaret, David, Lindsey and new granddaughter Evelyn.
Gordon Brown on painting – “I’m looking for an emotional content. It’s a modernist idea, from the beginning of the Twentieth Century, that colour conveys emotion. So then you are looking for colours. In any one composition you are probably looking for some light colours, some dark colours, in a way that’s what my paintings are about. They are about absolutes; that’s to say light and dark, warm and cool, being happy and being sad. It’s opposites.”
