Lydia Hamilton Brown


Lydia Hamilton Brown during her exhibition at Cerulean Arts

I have always been driven by curiosity: I once performed brain surgery on a dead seahorse and attempted to mummify a bat; I deputized myself at an early age so I could dig in the basement for relics and bones; I found that by living in an attic, I could maintain my collection of shells and dead bugs; I created diagrams of nuclear reactors and office spaces using art supplies made from beet juice and onion skins; I dreamed of someday visiting the tombs of the queens and pharaohs of Ancient Egypt.
After years of painting, installations, and teaching, something was still missing. A restlessness lingered. My love of history, research, and curiosity were not informing my work, so I decided it was time to do exactly what I wanted to with my art. I decided to share all the research and information I’ve gathered over the years from the books, silent films, and countless classes that feed my curiosity. That driving curiosity flowed forward: drawings and collage of victims, crimes, Victorian criminals, and crime scenes I have witnessed, manifested. I have finally found my niche, and “the names have been changed to protect the innocent!”
