Arden Bendler Browning

All at Once

Philadelphia based artist Arden Bendler Browning creates large abstract paintings referencing urban landscape and multiple perspectives. She draws from a wide range of sources as inspiration : the temporality of Impressionism, the gestural energy of Abstract Expressionism, and the combination of disparate forms from Postmodernism.

Travel – whether the everyday paths throughout her urban home base, or the moving landscape from a family road trip – has become the common thread throughout her work. Her paintings reflect on a persistent tension between time and memory, the layering of images, and developing complex representations that allude to the impossibility of fully capturing, knowing, or reaching a destination. She merges seemingly disparate elements, jumbling and layering references of thousands of photographs and gestural studies of light, color, and movement, retaining a feeling of place and time and our movement through both.
