It is beyond thrilling to welcome Gabrielle K Brown and her out-of-this-world talent, these paintings, and wooden sculptures to the FolkArtwork Collective. I have been a huge fan of Gabrielle’s work for a long time now, and I am honored to bring these to you today, tomorrow, and as long as they last, which I’m sure won’t be long.
Gabrielle K Brown is a multifaceted artist who eagerly and energetically seeks new ways to tell stories through her paintings, sculptures and public murals. Her work retains an object like quality utilising many folk art materials including wood and various paints, retaining a natural and intuitive, seemingly naive yet extremely complex aesthetic.Gabrielle K Brown’s Paintings & Wood Sculptures Available For Purchase at the FolkArtwork Collective
THIS WEEK IN OUTSIDER ART
ART ENVIRONMENT OF THE WEEK
At the age of 90, on a farm near Grinnell, Iowa, just 45 minutes East of Des Moines, Leonard J. Maasdam (1904-2003) completed a nearly 60-foot tall wheel tower in the middle of some cornfields. While there isn’t much else to see, the wheel tower gives off tremendous strength and energy the moment you see it over the hill, but definitely, as it towers over you when you’re up close, staring up at the some two hundred mesmerizing rust-colored wheels.
Now offering limited edition fine art prints of a few of the most brilliant Sarah Lee original works! Available for purchase, 25 prints of each work hand signed by the artist in the FolkArtwork Collective shop.
