Exploratory Art : Learning from the world around us

About the Artist & Educator : Kyle Browne

Artist Statement

I create because I am compelled to. Creative expression drives my soul. A balance, a release, a meditative state of purity, a flow. Capture.

Capturing the moment, the movement, collecting the subtleties, the essence, a feeling.

A fleeting feeling expressed in painted color on a smooth delicate piece of hand-made paper, or collaged on a battered block of salty driftwood. To completely immerse myself in the quiet intense focus of excitement and discovery.

I create to clarify my mind, to allow deep thoughts to emerge, to unearth connections with images, textures and text in relationship to my world, our world. Our world – a beautiful disaster. So fragile, yet resilient.

I create to connect and build with nature, to bridge art with the environment.

To engage with the sounds, visuals, and conscious, of a swish of a flock of sand pipers simultaneously taking off for flight, the reflection and ripples of a street puddle captured between thawing ice, or the light riding a wave onto the hard sand, of a shell covered beach.

I create to understand humans’ relationship to our earth, our cultures, and to express my respect for its undying strength as it continues to amaze me.

Share. I educate because of my desire to share. I want to share these moments with others, share the artists mind, the contemplation of the beauty and life in everything. Lightness and heaviness, natural and un-natural, to release the burdens and routine of life and add a certain weightlessness to them.

To surprise the viewer and challenge their way of seeing.

I create to be whole…. will you create with me?

Here’s an interview with Kyle and some photos of her work

Kyle Browne Art

Yesterday I finally got to meet with Kyle Browne in her studio on Main Street.  I don’t want to try to pretend that I am any sort of art critic.  What I know is when I see something I like or something that inspires me, I give props and Kyle’s work gets major props in my book.

Kyle’s work is fresh and unique and so very inspiring in that she is doing what speaks to her.  She is very connected to the ocean and earth which translates in just about all her pieces.

Growing up here in Gloucester and going through the many galleries over the years I tend to get bored with paintings of boats over and over and over again.  I know oil paintings of schooners probably sell and pay the bills but I find the art from the younger generations to be so much more creative. (god I sound old)

Video with Kyle coming at 1PM

About Hive

Hi There

Artists & Community

We are a pretty diverse crew, ranging both in our artistic styles as well as our passions. However, we find common ground in our vision to unite the creative & active community and make Cape Ann a more unique place. Check out our profiles to learn more about us.

Why?

For a place that has such a rich history with the arts, sometimes it feels like the current scene is much too focused on traditional fine art and is lacking on support for new mediums. Our gallery at The Hive sprouted from the fact that we have so many local friends doing interesting work, without a clear venue to show it.
