This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Painter and educator David Lloyd Brown is currently Associate Dean of Academic Affairs—Graduate Programs at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts. He has exhibited extensively for over 25 years, most recently in one person exhibitions at The New England School of Art & Design, The Artists Foundation Boston, and The Boston Drawing Project at the Bernard Toale Gallery, Boston, Massachusetts. From his widely exhibited paintings in the 1980s that explored the ornate and geometrically complex art of Baroque Abstraction, his work has evolved, according to curator Joseph Carroll of The Boston Drawing Project, into an “ongoing investigation of ordering systems and mark making.” 

He is currently a member of the advisory board of the Artists Foundation, Massachusetts and serves on the board of overseers of The Boston Modern Orchestra Project. In 1983 he was a founding member of the 249 A Street Artists Cooperative in Boston and continues to live and work in that city.

He received his Master of Fine Arts in 1986 from Cornell University and his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Massachusetts College of Art in 1979. David Lloyd Brown has taught painting, drawing and visual arts at the university level from 1989 until his most recent appointment at the Museum School.

On September 8, 2001 I exhibited the first of the orange paintings at the Hall Space Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. It was the weekend before... After that Tuesday I couldn’t continue working in that direction. While there were other projects completed, many building on my interest in genetics and evolution the orange paintings lay dormant, unrealized. Now a decade later I have returned to them. Inevitably shaped by the events of the past ten years these paintings embrace my desire to continue working. I ask that as you view these paintings you contemplate what you have lived through in the past ten years and meditate on how that time has shaped all of us.

On Evolution, Genetics and Abstract Painting:

Evolution explains the creation of new species as emerging from the physical structures available in earlier living forms. Thus evolved the legs and feet of amphibians from the fins of fish. Creation is not spontaneous generation but a cobbling together of genetic material found in the available building blocks in nature at the time. The templates I use are like genetic pieces. They become the compositional tools that allow me to find an aesthetic expression where change is inevitable and where order can coexist with continuous change. From approximately a dozen template shapes I discover new templates by combining parts of old ones and use these hybrids to make new compositions. The paintings and drawings here are part of the orange series begun in 2001 using a bright almost acid orange color reminiscent of the dyes used to stain specimen slides in biology. Brightly colored, these specimens float within a background pattern derived from the same template from which they are created. Flirting with the notion of creation these paintings present ornate decorative worlds from the simple origins of one repeated shape.
