self portrait

Justin Brown

BFA - painting

My work is about questioning the arbitrary nature of the rules that exist within art and of the hypocritical stance of those who try and force these rules upon the artists they influence. Artist claim to celebrate those who break the norm, but the art community only does so as long as breaking the norm still conforms to the concepts that they have already themselves embraced. I cannot make a piece without five people asking me, “who was your inspiration?” This suggests the interpretation of my work as having a complete lack of original thought. I refuse such traditions, and I refuse to conform to the ideas that have been redefined as “art”.
