Cecily Brown creates lush, visceral canvases based on a combination of figuration and abstraction. Her technical proficiency has earned her comparisons to Lucian Freud, Willem de Kooning, and Francis Bacon, yet it is her unique ability to convey the pleasurable and fleeting aspects of sensation that drive her work.Cecily Brown rapidly rose to success in the late 1990's, and was credited with having contributed to the resurgence of painting at the turn of the millennium. With a visual repertoire indebted as much to the classical themes of the old masters as to porn magazines and Hollywood films, Brown’s paintings challenge traditional interpretations and compel us to reconsider the act of painting from a decidedly feminine viewpoint.

Review:

"...Ashton finds evidence of a deepening talent whose recent work goes beyond the sexy hedonism that led to her early notoriety."
~Vogue
