Francesco Bonami


One of the most admired painters of his generation, Glenn Brown (b. 1966) borrows from art history and popular culture to investigate the languages of painting. Nominated for the Turner Prize in 2000, Brown is fascinated by how reproductions of paintings distort the qualities of the originals. The most thorough investigation of the artist’s work in print, this book features contributions by leading international critics and over 70 paintings, sculptures and previously unpublished new works, including spectacular gatefold illustrations.

Working from books or projecting reproductions onto a blank surface, Brown transforms familiar images into alien ones by making changes in size, color, surface texture, and brushwork. Culling source material from DalĂ­, Rembrandt, Auerbach and others, Brown’s playful technique juxtaposes elements of kitsch and the sublime. Published to accompanying a major, touring retrospective exhibition, Glenn Brown is the premier testament to a sensational body of work.
