Kristen Brown (@kristenbrown)
I am a San Francisco−based painter originally from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. My oil paintings, based on experimental film photography, explore the themes of dislocation, transience, and memory. I exhibit throughout California, US, and Canada. My work has been shown at the de Young Museum, Berkeley Art Center, Root Division, Carnegie Arts Center, Mendel Art Gallery, and Void Gallery. In 2015 I was awarded a painting grant from the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation in Montreal. I received my B.F.A. in Studio Art from the University of Saskatchewan and my M.F.A. in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
