Deborah Brown’s paintings conflate the foreign and familiar, recontextualizing recognizable imagery–from mythology, art history, and literature–into the artist’s own expressionistic landscapes, portraits and still lifes. In these works, the figures are blatantly Picasso-esque, yet displaced in Brown’s canvases, they take on an unexpected element of whimsy and anthropomorphism. Brown’s process liberates her figures from the stagnating weight of history, allowing them to function freely across a broad spectrum of ideas and emotions.
Deborah Brown is represented by Mike Weiss Gallery.
