David Brownlow started creating art at the age of five in Fort Worth, TX. He studied art under Margaret Littlejohn and Patti East. He experimented with knives and wire as painting tools which lead to his thick textured and exacting lines.
Henry B. Caldwell, former director of the Fort Worth Art Center commented: "Brownlow's painting has vigor and a precious of touch that separates it sharply from the contemporary happenhance school. His work has strength with an underlying appeal for order; his concern with space and color holds fascination to both the traditional as well as abstract painting."
Jerry Bywaters, the director of the Dallas Museum of Art, had the following to say about Brownlow's work: "Colors, however subtle, plays a greater part; the cool and calculated designs of the past give way to greater freedom in the act of execution and a direct form of expressionism is in command…."
Brownlow's work has been collected by: Bob Hope, Winthrop Rockefeller, Edward Marcus, Charles Tandy, Angus Wynn and Ralph Bellamy. His paintings can be found in the following permanent collections: Smithsonian Institute, Dallas Museum of Art, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Beaumont Art Museum and The Worchester Museum, Massachusetts.
