Esther Brown

My work is based around the concepts of symmetry, beauty and Utopia. The idea that symmetry is related to perfection and divinity is an ancient one. Symmetry dominates the man-made and natural world and it’s patterns are evident everywhere: the stripes of a tiger, the petals of a flower and the human body. My aim in my current drawings is to hold in tandem the wild unpredictability of nature with the effortless beauty of it’s symmetry. The subjects in my work are often framed by brightly indulgent flowers, butterflies and gold; imagery that lends itself to the idea of Utopia.
