Nocturnal angels take flight with heavenly messages from the divine at G Fine Art
divine sleektah 2 (archangel midra), 2009-2011.
WASHINGTON, DC.- G Fine Art presents iona rozeal brown open.ed harmonious diatribes l works in progress from the stage November 4, 2011 through December 31, 2011.

Nocturnal angels take flight with heavenly messages from the divine. The constant expansion of time and space challenges the western thought that time itself is a linear progression. iona rozeal brown moves objects, materials, and ideologies from discourses of history that reference the underground culture of eighties New York to Neo-Classicism. brown has created her own ode to graffiti, incorporating illuminated manuscript inspired texts as well as abstracted figurative forms on wood panels and paper. Using acrylic polymer, pencil, ink and 'painter-makers", browns imagery are reflections of the musical notes of Dubstep, an electronic music with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals. Her paintings as well as her upcoming performance commissioned by Performa, are immersed with pictorial cultural references of Islamic calligraphy, consumption societies of the west, as well as theatrical elements found within west African ghost stories, Japanese Noh, and Kabuki theater, all converging together with the lines and precision of "vogueing" and nuances of hip-hop. brown pushes the boundaries of identities and questions the very idea of culture belonging to any one ethnic or geographical group.

open.ed explores the very nature of cultural expansions of ideas and discources. brown experiments with different contextual and conceptual manifestations, while in the process, bringing textured surfaces to the stage. brown's recent works explore the cognitive process of internalizing the external. open.ed extends brown's visual discourse and challenges the very notion of the production of art. Exhibiting the fluidity of a mixologist, brown's newest works reinforce her ability to pull from facets of visual, social, political and cultural narratives to construct the very tapestry that references the 80's New York to the youth of the "lost generation" and their constant appropriation and consumption within society. These allegories are also woven into her upcoming performance 17 & 18 November at Performa 11, titled "the battle of yestermore". – K. Anthony Jones
