Henry Brown forms his imagery in his pattern-like geometric paintings from mechanically drawn structural schematics. The schematics are drawn directly on the gessoed canvases using compass and ruler. Henry Brown then paints the imagery, but leaves the under-drawings visible to function as pictorial elements in the finished artwork. He animates his brightly colored surfaces through systems of perspective and changing spatial relationships.
