Ashlynn Browning earned her BA in Studio Art and English from Meredith College and her MFA in painting and printmaking from the University of NC at Greensboro. She has received grants and residency fellowships from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, United Arts Council, Vermont Studio Center, and Virginia Center for Creative Arts.
Browning’s work was featured in the 2015 and 2009 Southern editions of New American Paintings, as well as in recent exhibitions in Columbia, Atlanta, New Jeresy and Washington DC. She exhibits nationally and internationally and is represented by Flanders Gallery, Raleigh NC, if ART Gallery, Columbia, SC and Whitespace Gallery, Atlanta GA.
Her recurring use of grids, networks, and, since 2013, stacked forms, may recall architectural structures, but these are only created in response to the paint as she works, instinctively.
Colors, which play a very important part in Browning’s paintings, will also vary depending on her feelings or interests of the moment (nature, fashion trends, or art historical preferences).
However, in practice, they will rarely be primary colors, and there will almost always be some Guston pink in her work
