Gabrielle Brown is a multifaceted creator who eagerly seeks new ways to tell stories through her paintings and wood sculptures. Born on the east coast of Canada, she grew up along the river side and mountains which is where she connected to art and began painting and sculpting. She continued to create work almost daily throughout her childhood/adolescence and in 2012 she began to pursue a professional career as an artist. Since then, she was discovered and represented by Buckland Merrifield Gallery which gave her the opportunity to have her first solo and group exhibitions. In 2017 she received the emerging artist grant by ArtsNB which allowed her to expand her art practice towards woodcarving. In 2018, she painted three murals, two in Saint John, NB Canada and one in Moncton, NB Canada for an international mural festival called Inspire.
Gabrielle has spent much of her life traveling the world and moving throughout Canada which has always reflected in her work. She believes that the more we experience life outside of our comfort zone the wider our consciousness reaches which in turn has brought her art to new levels. What she creates are her views on the human condition both personally and as an observer of others around her. She discects the relationship we have with ourselves, our companions, nature and God. She sheds light on how we suffer as humans but contrasts the subjects with uplifting symbols, actions and words. She has recently started a company called Magnetic Force with her sister and fellow artist Chloe Brown. The company is a collaboration of artwork, performance, clothing and sound. Gabrielle is currently living and working in Saint John, New Brunswick where she sells her art internationally to private collectors. She has shown her work at Art Basel Miami, Anteism Books in Montreal and in the United States at Superchief Gallery NY and LA. As for the future, she plans to create public sculptural installations in the spring/summer of 2021 as well as further her practice doing murals while continuing to make art to sell privately and to exhibit.
