Nigel Brown painting inspired by Owls Do Cry

A 1997 painting ex the artist's collection referencing Janet Frame's novel Owls Do Cry was hung at Diversion Gallery in July 2018 in an exhibition entitled Matariki Ta Te Manawa as part of Matariki Festival in Picton.

"Stylistically unique, but a distinctive portrait - Nigel Brown's homage to icons both literary and environmental. Just a touch of gilt to that wonderful red hair, beneath a golden moon." - Diversion Gallery Facebook Page

Nigel Brown has new work in an exhibition 'Organic Thinking II' currently showing at Diversion Gallery in Picton until 15 December 2018 as part of his series 'Climate of Change' on themes of sustainability and social issues.
