Accelerator Fellow (2017)
“I understand the importance of balancing the production of my work and the promotion of it, as well as actively searching for new opportunities to showcase my work … There is an audience for every artist’s work, and finding that audience is key to success.”
“Some artists believe that turning their practice into a business jeopardizes their artistic integrity and autonomy … I believe that with strong business practices and confidence in my artwork, the two can work hand-in-hand to support my professional and artistic goals.”
Originally from Saskatchewan, Canada, Kristen Brown creates oil paintings that are based on experimental film photography. Her work explores the themes of dislocation, transience, and memory.
