Alice Browne’s work has a pleasing directness. This is not vague abstraction. Compelling forms are described in strong colour. Brushstrokes are forthright; labour is clear. Within quite limited parameters she manages to do a lot. The way colour interacts is clearly important; structures serve both to demarcate and to bring together areas of brushwork. Many of her compositions have a sense of ‘rightness’ that makes them at once engaging and familiar.
