Big Medium is pleased to present Future Past, a selection of linocuts by Melissa Brown. This exhibition, held in conjunction with PrintAustin, brings together a series of reduction linoleum prints made by the New York-based artist over the past decade. Since 1997, these prints have served as primary source material for her studio practice and the layer technique inherent to reduction linocuts has shaped her process in all media. The ongoing print series has never before been shown in a solo exhibition.

In her mixed-media paintings and animations, Brown explores what is supped-up and otherworldly about ordinary experience. Her work presents a multi-registered view of reality, combining a range of material and imagery from other artworks, her own prints, drawings in scratch-off lottery ink, found materials, airbrush and observational painting.

Melissa Brown’s solo exhibitions and projects have included: Four Play at Essex Flowers, Palisades at Kansas, Paper Fortune at CANADA, Smokin’ Mirrors at Bellwether, Dotto Lotto at Winkleman, Eye in the Sky Hold ‘Em at Where Gallery in New York City and Gertrude’s Nose at Fred Giampietro in Connecticut. Internationally she has mounted solo exhibitions at Kenny Schacter, ROVE in London and Roberto Paradise in Puerto Rico. Her paintings, prints and animations will be included in ‘Providence’, a forthcoming museum exhibition at the Museé International des Arts Modestas, France. Her work has been shown at Mass MOCA, Zieher Smith, P.P.O.W, Socrates Sculpture Park, High Dessert Test Sites, Art in General, Sue Scott Gallery and Bronx River Art Center, to name a few. She participated in Performa 07 and staged How to Win the Lottery at the Nuit Blanche in Toronto 2009. She was awarded the Joan Mitchell Grant for painting in 2012. NADA NY presented Eye in the Sky Hold ‘Em as a special program in May 2015.
