Cecily Brown @ Thomas Dane Gallery

11 June 2016 - 23 July 2016

Cecily Brown is, and has been throughout her career, one of the most engaged and distinctive painters of our time. To this day, her preoccupation remains the Body – in all its various guises and narratives: as subject matter, as form, as boundary, but also as quintessence, as core structure, and even as a total Corpus. Brown’s paintings are immersive. Her passion for her craft is contagious. She keeps reminding us how great it is to look at art unhurriedly: the miraculous pleasure (and rare treat) of contemplation, examination – not in a complacent, or comforting way, but as a tool for existential inquiry. A painting, for her, ought to reveal itself slowly, almost ‘continuously’.
