Capricorn Planetary Alignment 2020-2021
2020 was a year of global pandemic. Enormous changes caused limitation-isolation-lockdown-confinements-seclusion-powerlessness-fear-anxiety-depression-confusion-lack of trust-increase death rate-anger-panic-violent outburst and suicide, globally. Multitudes of people around the universe found this time to introspect. Therefore, preparing themselves for all the new changes to come. James Brown Jr. 2020-21.

James Brown Jr.

Brown documents his environment as he continues to create his art in several mediums from works on paper to textiles of many different fibers. Brown says that his dreams heavily influence the completion of his works, and believes that as spiritual beings we are connected to the universe. He recognizes himself as a traditionalist, and a visionary. He embroiders, does hand stitching, paints on silk and has embraced the magical process of painting with wool fibers and felting.
