"The basic idea of SWEAT SHOP is to extrapolate the mutuality of art and money, while commenting on the means of capitalist production in a globalized world, and reflecting on the artistic traditions in the means and ends of production in the eastern and the western philosophy."

"Brown is taking part in what has been interpreted as a resurgence of abstraction, but is in fact a pair of popular mainstreams travelling side by side. The pure abstractionists keep to the relatively safe waters of inventive ebullience, while Brown and company brave the rapids of recognizable subject matter, while holding fast to the same improvisational attitude that marks abstraction’s timeless appeal."Download Article (PDF)

"Sudeith doesn't just want to make a picture in the rock that will last the test of time. He aims, in a way, to document things that are of value for the community itself. These are not decorations, these are social interventions and documentations. The striped bass matters to the Nova Scotia fishermen whose boulders he worked."

"Brown started the series in 2006. A year later, several of the sculptures began making their way into exhibitions and art fairs, 'But I had never been able to show the works the way I had originally intended them to be seen, at the proper scale/size, as a whole body of work,' writes the artist in an email to The Creators Project. The current show at Mike Weiss was his opportunity to stage the works as he’d originally envisioned, and to revisit the decade-long series.'I do think it's important for a young artist to experiment and push their work, sometimes come back to an idea later in order to reach its greater potential,' he comments."
