Adele Quartley Brown is an award-winning, emerging artist. Her work focuses on the intersection of perception and misconception. She captures moments where the ordinary and the odd cross paths, encouraging fictional narratives from documented reality. Her abstract work exposes the subtle language of riddles and symbols surrounding us.
Drawn to scenes that raise questions about what we believe we know, and what we know, Adele’s vision underscores irony's universality.
In 2021, two of Adele's series received First Place [Winner] in the 17th Julia Margaret Cameron Awards competition for the categories "Pandemic" and "Cell Phone" photography. A third series was Runner Up in the People category. This is the third year in a row that the Julia Margaret Cameron Awards have honored Adele's work.
Another series from her Blending In project received Third Place in a juried competition at the Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts in late 2021.
