Duncan Brown exhibition, Gallery One, Town Hall, Ipswich, until April 12!

Currently at Ipswich Town Hall in Gallery One, an exhibition by artist and poet Duncan Brown is on show and it’s certainly worth a look if you are in the town centre.

Pop in, have a coffee and enjoy a selection of paintings and collages by a local artist who has been living in Ipswich since 2000.

After starting to write poetry in the early 80s, Duncan Brown went on to commission artists and illustrators to create traditionally styled illuminations for his poems. Thereafter, Brown began to create them himself during the 90s, and this is where his poems and art began to forge as a cohesive entity.

Using everyday icons, Brown collages, hand-cuts and paints his poems, and since the turn of the millennium Brown has focused on writing a new body of poetry.

Since suffering a stroke in 2009, Brown has been teaching himself to paint with his left hand to continue production of his work.

The exhibition is colourful and has a sense of optimism about it, and a highlight of the show has to be the painting, Don’t let the milk-floats blow your mind, 2001.

The exhibition runs from March 25 until April 12.
