The British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969), based in New York since the 1990s, is one of the central figures internationally in the resurgence of painting since the turn of the century. Combining abstraction and figuration, she creates vivid, atmospheric depictions of fragmented bodies, often in erotic positions in the midst of swells of color and movement.

Brown pays tribute to the potential of painting for seduction, and draws on references ranging from pornography to elements from the visual worlds of Bosch, Goya and Hogarth, and most recently motifs from the human disasters of our own time. Having also been compared to painters like Bacon and de Kooning, Brown’s work offers a female artist’s gaze at a world dominated by male artists.

This catalog is published for an exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, comprising paintings as well as drawings and monotypes from the past 20 years.
