Adam David Brown

“Scales of time rise and fall through the works on display in Adam David Brown’s exhibition. The slow shift of continents in 0 Degrees Latitude’s equatorial rocks. The steady accumulation, sampling, and questioning of knowledge in Core Sample: A Century. Days and months marked out in scraps of household paper, drifting clouds, the phases of the moon.” – Ruth Jones

Adam David Brown is a multidisciplinary artist living in Toronto, Canada and former resident of Peterborough. His work is guided by the principle of less is more, and is frequently generated by his interest in science, language and the passage of time. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, he completed his MFA at the University of Guelph in 2007. Brown has exhibited work in Canada, Europe, Central America and the United States. His solo exhibition at MKG127 in 2009 was reviewed by Artforum and Canadian Art and brought his work to the attention of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts who awarded him their 2009 Artist Prize. 

He was recently awarded an Artist Grant by the Ontario Arts Council and a Project Grant by the Canada Council For the Arts. His work is held in various private, public and corporate collections, including The Art Gallery of Ontario. 

The Art Gallery of Peterborough is open to the public, by appointment
