Glenn Brown: Musée National Eugène-Delacroix, Paris
Current and Forthcoming exhibitionSolo Exhibitions
One of Britain's most revered contemporary artists, Glenn Brown works across painting, drawing and sculpture, taking as his source material reproduced imagery from art history and popular culture to create complex and sensuous works of art.
At the core of Brown's practice is the blending of artistic periods, stylistic modes and genres. Transcending time and pictorial conventions, his work disarms common distinctions between good and bad taste, beauty and abjection, heightening the emotive tension present within. In his quotation of traditional subjects and techniques he explores the expressive potential of his materials and expands the limits of representation.
This exhibition is organised by Galerie Max Hetzler, Paris and Berlin, and will be on show during the FIAC International Art Fair.
