Cecily Brown is known for her dynamic, densely packed, large-scale canvases in which grappling figures and pastoral landscapes explode into a frenzy of illicit views and fragmentary parts. Alongside these paintings Cecily has also produced a highly considered, commited body of prints.
Cecily Brown studied in London at the Slade School of Fine Art, graduating in 1993. As a painter Brown felt remote from the 'Young British Artist' phenomenon dominating London, so in 1994 she moved to New York. Her first work to gain recognition was the animated film Four Letter Heaven (1995), which had its premiere at Telluride Film Festival and then toured Europe and the USA. In it she introduced themes that were to become central to her work: pornography, the depiction of flesh and the sensuality of paint. Her first paintings were large-scale depictions of bodies in orgiastic, semi-abstract sprawls, for example Puce Moment (1997; see 1998 exh. cat.). Her paintings have been compared to those of Willem de Kooning, Francis Bacon and Sue Williams, given her attention to bodies in space painted in an expressionistic manner. Their surfaces are often varnished, so that the viewer is held back from their intense images.
