Cecily Brown

Laerke Rydal Jorgensen, Anders Kold, Poul Erik Tojner

The British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969), based in New York since the 1990s, is one  of the central figures in the international 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 colour and  movement. Brown pays tribute to the potential of painting for seduction, and draws on  references ranging from classic 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 catalogue is published  to accompany an exhibition at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark, comprising her latest paintings as well as drawings and monotypes.
