The Art of Glenn Brown

by JL SchnabelPosted on

Oscillating between grotesque portraiture and abstract gelantious shapes, artist Glenn Brown’s works apply masterful color knowledge with an interesting, loose paint application. The turbulence of the paint technique contrasts with the old world reference, culled from works already in existence and manipulated, as the artist describes: “I‘m rather like a Dr Frankenstein, constructing paintings out of the residue or dead parts of other artist‘s work. I hope to create a sense of strangeness by bringing together examples of the way the best historic and modern-day artists have depicted their personal sense of the world. I see their worlds from multiple or schizophrenic perspectives, through all their eyes.” View more of the visceral works below.
