Location: Hunnewell Building
As an Artist-in-Residence at Deschutes National Forest in Oregon and the White Mountain National Forest in New Hanpshire, Kyle Browne investigated the organic world of nature with the simplicity of drawing, observation, and meditation. In her Time-lapse Drawings, Browne seeks to unearth and capture the unobserved moment and change that occurs within a site-specific setting. Once a site is chosen, the shadows are duplicated repeatedly on paper, building levels of graphite to catch the intangible, fleeting moments of time. Her Time-lapse Drawings were born from spending time at the Arnold Arboretum before she began her residency at the White Mountain National Forest, where they continued and flourished.
Browne’s work, Hidden Cartography of Beetles, encourages the viewer to examine a world of secret dialogues, symbols, and the map-making of wood-boring beetles. Deep in the Deschutes National Forest, Browne utilized charcoal, graphite, and pastel, printing in the field, then creating stark and stunning designs on paper.
Browne has been awarded six residencies, received a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY, and is a candidate for an MFA at the School of Visual Arts, New York City.
