"...there is only one Andrew Browne – an artist who consistently keeps evolving and re-evolving both the possibilities of paint on canvas and the way in which it relates to the physical world... He draws from a wide field of references, including photography, cinema and art history, to devise a new approach to image making, which is governed by the joint dictates of sensation, innovation and revelation." – Simon Gregg, Curator, Gippsland Art Gallery.
The fourth of a series of monumental paintings combining abstraction from nature alongside a ‘shadowy, ambiguous’ figuration, Threshold #4 heightens the slippage between an objective outer world and the psychological inner world. The figure, seemingly oblivious to the portents embedded in nature’s relentless deluge, is instead focused inward on the phantasms of the digital stream. Emblematic of the complex and advancing narratives of current circumstances, this lone figure is nevertheless momentarily stilled amongst the escalating phenomena.
