Excerpt from Intelligent Design

Though among the least colorful works here, the two large paintings by Henry Brown are also the most aggressive. Their blue-green and greenish-yellow lines, carefully widening and narrowing as they progress across the canvas, join in symmetrical, angular lattices that simultaneously encourage and defeat an illusion of three-dimensionality. Close inspection reveals an underdrawing of numerous, finely ruled lines that connect a system of mysterious nodal points. Mr. Brown selectively fills the spaces in between to arrive at his pattern of color. Their peculiar facture—with private beginnings to demonstrative gestures—adds to their fanatical air.
