Artist Statement

I always felt like a stranger in my hometown and as I grew up moving from place to place, city to city, country to country I learned that home allows you the freedom to be who you are and it’s not a place but a state of mind, an inner peace.

My on-going Domestication series explores the concept of home. With the imagery of wild animals juxtaposed with decorative wallpaper. The wallpaper gives a sense of nostalgia. Its patterns tell stories of belonging and familiar routine. Whereas the animals represent curiosity and freedom to roam.

Biography

Corran Brownlee spent his early years in Calgary, Canada before moving to London where he immersed himself in the British film industry as a storyboard artist and illustrator. After thirteen years in London and a year in New York working as a senior creative for a visual effects company, Corran returned to Calgary, where he now lives and works. His work continues to harbor the aesthetic he developed in London, stripped back images in black and white, haunting snapshots of untold narratives. Throughout his career, he has explored different mediums including film, mixed media, and is now focusing primarily on charcoal and oil. Corran's work is part of private and corporate collections in Europe, the United States, and Canada.
