Glenn Brown at Domaine de Kerguéhennec, 56500 Bignan, France
Contemplating the work of Glenn Brown, one gets the feeling that this is what contemporary painting "should" be like: Brown's canvases play with our perceptions, appropriate and reconfigure past works, and offer intoxicating visions of our future-present. While some of his works seem to combine the influence of Gerhard Richter with science-fiction graphics, others are "re-paintings" of works by Rembrandt, de Kooning, Dali, Fragonard and Appel. This new monograph surveys Brown's recent output of remarkably vibrant works that combine the appeal of pop culture--from New Order songs to Bladerunner--with the best of the visual arts.
