Bayliss Brown is a retired senior lecturer in medical informatics and family physician. He is a lifelong scholar of early renaissance painting techniques, particularly the transition between egg tempera and the introduction of oil as a medium - exemplified by the work of Masolino da Panicale.
Drawing inspiration from historical materials and methods, his research concerns how his practice can be reconciled and belong to the 21st century but maintain connection to the past. His deep appreciation and understanding of a painting’s anatomy promotes a modus operandi that blurs the boundaries between painting and sculpture. He now paints full time in Norfolk, England & Panicale, Umbria and completed an MA in Fine Art at the Norwich University of the Arts in 2015. He has exhibited in the UK, Italy, USA and China; and been shortlisted for a number of prizes, including the BP Portrait award in 2015, Deutsche Bank Award 2016 and Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize 2019 (www.lynnpainterstainersprize.org.uk). .
