Kyle Browne returns to Flatrocks with new work from her ongoing exploration of the “consciousness of place.” Browne is essentially an ‘environmental artist’, primarily doing site specific sculptures and graphite drawings using natural material. She offers a series of boats made from cork tree needles from the Arnold Arborteum where she has just had a solo show. Browne states “This idea of using a boat for a symbolic journey is a reoccurring theme in my work and I want to continue to push this idea through these imaginative explorations of site, nature and material…... travel, navigation, shape, the implications of childhood and nostalgia. A boat to me is freedom. The boat becomes a means of escape as well as a vessel to travel through time among the waves of the unconscious.
