Jeannie Browns' subjects are based on her interest in the environment of the city and its cultural dynamics and integration. Her work both abstract and figurative question the make up of the city and its inhabitants.

The paintings are constructed using a variety of paints and wax including oils and acrylics. The mediums are carefully layered, taken back and then re layered to form the abstract patterns, shapes and figures in the work.

This layering and re-layering is a parallel to the regeneration that is constant and on-going within a city.

Brown is also interested in the elements of decay in structure and architecture and how change often dictates how areas are maintained or left to nature to reclaim.

The cultural make up or dynamic of an area may dictate the standard of decay and regeneration going on which brings into question social options, funding and poverty. And whether local individual initiatives are supported.
