Gina Brown graduated from Newcastle University in 2012 with a BA degree with Honours in Fine Art. She has since been represented by online gallery New Blood Art and is currently represented by Lane House Arts, Bath. Gina continues to establish her presence in the artistic community with open submissions and exhibitions. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in London, Newcastle, Bolton and Bath, and was shortlisted for both the Neo:art prize 2013 and New Lights art prize 2013, where she was awarded the Curzon Ripon art prize which resulted in a solo show in Spring 2014. She has also created a new Signature Collection of apparel that represents a selection of her artwork; authentic to the key themes of her practice.
Gina’s work was selected for the National Open Art Exhibition 2016, where she was honoured to receive the Peaches Miniature Award.
Gina’s paintings translate an archive of old photographic material. Her phantom images are devoid of facial detail, giving her work a haunting poignancy. With a deft use of oil paint Gina shows a deep understanding of the Gothic and Sublime.
