Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community
Tim Brown is a visual artist who received his BFA from Kansas University and his Masters of Fine Arts from the University of California Santa Barbara. He has exhibited in group exhibitions around the United States and has had solo shows in both Chicago and Texas. He works as a sculptor using materials such as found wood, architectural glass, plastic wrap, office-variety acrylic diffusors, and clamp lights with party bulbs. Brown uses a variety of elements that are combined in a variety of ways to create environments for the viewer.
Brown writes: “My sculptural work continues to be concerned with elements of the Light & Space movement combined with the materiality of Arte Povera. It uses inexpensive lighting effects and common materials to create mystical and otherworldly environments. In the next year, I am going to fold in a photographic practice that explores abstractions of these environments that I create as an iterative interpretation of the sculptural environments.”
