Leonard Brown has stated that the icons are “an emblem of the natural world”. Notwithstanding that the oil paintings on canvas are created within an alternative time frame, in different media, and with separate intentions, they nonetheless offer a view of the deep joy that is also possible within the abstractly painted idiom relating to the natural world. These are works that defy the current obsession with “innovation” and Leonard Brown is certainly not an emerging artist, but perhaps a submerging artist, nonetheless buoyed by the lifejacket of integrity, tradition and enduring ambition. – Ian Friend
