David Brownell MFA '10
David Brownell of Branford paints mysterious allegories with classical references. “My paintings contain a blend of contemporary and classical art with historical and personal symbolism. In my work, the allure of the double tongued personal narrative is directly linked to the complexity of the composition. The vision of my work is based on the contrast between perceptual realism and emotionally charged expressionism. The paintings reach deeply into one’s psyche by evoking the sense of a specific emotion or sensation without defining them completely.”
David graduated from Paier College of Art with a BFA in Illustration. He also received art teacher certification from Southern CT State University.
