Jackie Brown

Marvin H. Green, Jr. Assistant Professor of Art

On leave for the 2017-18 academic year.

I work to create imagined biological systems that suggest growth, movement, and expansion. It's often ambiguous as to whether the forms are benign or toxic and I hope to suggest mutation, as if systems are melding into new and uncertain growths. While each work is imaginative, the ideas that are central to the work reference real phenomenon and I am increasingly interested in experiments that involve the human manipulation of living systems.
