About Deborah

Deborah Brown earned a BA from Yale University and an MFA from Indiana University, Bloomington.

Her work depicts urban and pastoral landscapes, birds, flowers, undersea environments, and the dogs she has cared for as a volunteer at a shelter. She has painted ambiguous encounters between animals and humans that result from the collision of the natural world with our technological conquest.

Her most recent work depicts the ’post-apocalyptic’ beauty of Bushwick, Brooklyn, where keeps a studio and is involved in community activism. She describes the area, so full of its industrial rubble and urban decay, as resembling a lunar landscape:

“Abandoned houses stand alone in fields of debris; macabre elements such as clumps of shoes dangle from wires above the street; and morning glories intertwine with barbed wire on the perimeter of junk yards.”
