SGgallery is pleased to host the eighth edition of the International Triennial of the Artist Book of Vilnius “Memento Mori”.
An international jury has selected the 337 works that will be exhibited in the prestigious traveling exhibition until 2020. The exhibition, which has already touched Leipzig, Urbino, Vilnius and Vercelli, will then arrive in Venice and will continue in the USA at the Reed Library of the State University of New York in Freedonia.
Martin Brown’s paintings deal primarily with the built environment, especially urban spaces. Brown draws on the history of painting in the Western tradition to explore ideas of memory and perception as they relate to the architecture and topography of modern cities. “I am interested in the layering of time, how different periods in history are visually present within the built environment and how different modes of painting can represent and comment on these different periods.”
