Artist Statement

Crystal Ann Brown is an interdisciplinary artist/mother/academic currently working in
Buckhannon, West Virginia. For the past 9 years, her work has focused on holistically
blending art and life. This blending of her studio practice with her daily life also touches on
its inherent challenges. In her words, “my love/hate relationship with my kitchen might
manifest in my drawings and paintings that celebrate work and the labor of love with a hint
of fury and frustration shown in the economy of line found in blind contour drawings.” Her
practice strives to reveal the underappreciated aspects of mothering and everyday life
through the use of textiles, sculpture, time-based media, social practice and drawing.
