Reference: Emma Cain, Vanessa Van Ooyen, Sasha Grishin, Union with Reality: The Art of Leonard Brown, exhibition catalogue, QUT Art Museum, Brisbane, 2011:
"The life or spirit in Brown's work is not limited to some austere, transcendent 'otherness'. While the space of the infinite sublime is alluded to through repetition and minimalism (or silence), his work is also of the world, immanent and sometimes quietly humorous." (Cain & Van Ooyen, op. cit.)
