Featured Artist – Cecily Brown

Her paintings are titled after movie musicals, as in the case of Father of the Bride (1999; Buffalo, NY Albright-Knox A.G.), where the paint quality becomes the focus of the subject-matter, with pastel-coloured swirls threatening to engulf the figure of a man. Brown’s work has a humour and a passion that take on the legacy of the male Abstract Expressionists and overturn their epic compositions, using her interest in paint to present mocking sexual imagery in a disturbing combination of sensuality and repulsion.
