Lyndell Brown and Charles Green have worked together as an artist duo since 1989. Since 2010, they have collaborated with Jon Cattapan on an ongoing series of works that emerge from their experiences as Australian war artists, Cattapan in Timor-Leste in 2009 and Brown & Green in Iraq and Afghanistan in 2007.
Working across mixed media on paper, oil on linen, and with transparent digital prints overpainted in oil and acrylic, they have built a unique vocabulary that both speaks to the aftermath of contemporary wars but also to the contemporary condition of continuous conflict across the globe. The three artists have developed a unique and consistent aesthetic driven by their shared collaborative voice, a voice that they have articulated now over six years and that continues into future three-way projects.
The works that the three have exhibited together have been acquired by major public art museums and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the UQ Museum of Art, the Australian War Memorial and the Shrine of Remembrance.
