Gavin Brown's current work recalls the sights, flavours and moods of his recent explorations of Asia. Using a multimedia approach to capture the visual sensations of his discoveries, Gavin has been able to present a body of new work that transports the viewer beyond that of the typical travellers' experience. The rich and exotic use of colour on colour, texture on texture and juxtaposition of subject matter convey a literal interpretation of the artist's busy mind, unloaded onto the canvas.

This exhibition represents a coming together of Gavin's need to explore the surreal, the unimaginable and the unexpected and present it in beautiful, mystical and evocative snapshots of his imaginings.

With over 25 solo and group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, Gavin Brown's work is held in collections including the Victoria and Albert Museum (London), The Powerhouse (Sydney), and the National Gallery of Victoria (Melbourne).

Brown has been featured in a number of national and international publications including The Cool Hunter, The Design Files, UK's Idol Magazine and Romanian magazine LUXERY.

This is Gavin Brown's ninth solo exhibition at fortyfivedownstairs.
