Adam David Brown is a multidisciplinary artist living in Toronto. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design, he completed his Masters of Fine Art at the University of Guelph in 2007.

Adam has achieved critical success with his many solo and group exhibitions. His exhibition at MKG127 in 2009 was reviewed by Artforum and Canadian Art and brought his work to the attention of the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts who awarded him their 2009 Artist Prize.

Guided by the principle of “less is more”, Adam’s work is frequently generated by his interest in silence and ephemerality. Intentionally spare, his work attempts to find a balance between emptiness and form, mark making and erasure. Adam is represented by MKG127.

Adam David Brown creates installations, often with video projection and altered publications. He removes small selections from established objects and expands them on a large scale, highlighting and contextualising material that may have otherwise been overlooked. This practice of presenting part and whole in juxtaposition with each other is an intelligent take on concepts of emptiness, individuality, and history. And to top it all off, Brown’s work is really interesting visually, as well.
