Wk8 – Artist Conversation – Sienna Browne

Artist: Sienna Browne
Exhibition: Product of the Palette
Media: Painting, Drawing

Sienna Browne is an undergraduate student at the California State University of Long Beach. She is in her fourth year and her last semester at Long Beach. She is working toward finishing her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in the School of Art’s Drawing and Painting program. Browne is currently a Huntington Beach lifeguard and an instructional student assistant for the art department at Long Beach State. Browne struggled with an eating disorder that subconsciously influenced all of her art work during that time. She states that she didn’t realize that the pieces she created held a much deeper meaning behind them until she was in college.

Browne had presented multiple pieces of her art world that she created over her life time. Most of her pieces were very bright and colorful. However, there was some of her pieces that were just black and white. Many of her pieces were abstract and included depth, rhythm, and texture. She even has a collection with food on top of people’s heads.

Browne spent her first three years of college focused on processing themes that concerned her struggles with her eating disorder and body issues. She initially did not realize why she was creating art that was centered around food. She told her professor that she thought the puns from her paintings were clever. Her professor told her that was not a meaningful explanation behind her paintings. She later realized that it was her subconscious feeling about her eating disorder she was expressing.

Browne did an amazing job conveying her message, and had beautiful artwork. It really helped having her in class to explain her story and meanings behind her work. Her artwork was was so well done that there was some pieces I couldn’t tell if it was a painting or a drawing. I could relate to her in the way that she didn’t realize she was expressing her subconscious feelings until she was older.
