Muestra, por primera vez en España, de las pinturas de la artista inglesa Cecily Brown (Londres, 1969). Su obra sigue la trayectoria expresionista figurativa de mediados del siglo XX, marcada por Willem de Kooning o Francis Bacon. Su pintura -8 cuadros recientes de gran formato- es dinámica y energética, ofreciendo imágenes alucinatorias de apariencia abstracta, en las que poco a poco identificamos fragmentos de figuras humanas, animales o plantas. Su tratamiento de la pintura refleja la violencia y el abandono del erotismo, ofreciendo imágenes de éxtasis repletas de tensión sexual.

Cecily Brown’s (London, 1969) paintings revisit some of the great moments of universal artistic tradition with references to and influences of well-known artists such as Francisco de Goya, Willem de Kooning, Philip Guston, and Francis Bacon. In this way, Brown shares with André Masson an interest in the ferocity of the sexual instinct and the tragedies inherent in nature as well as the representation of genitalia as natural ornaments. With an expressionistic appearance, they are pieces in which desire seems like something that is uncontrollable, or which has its own orders and laws. However, on other occasions Brown paints small animals or figures that appear to come from comics, where humour becomes the dominant tone. This mixture of pop with expressionism places the artist’s work in the realm of the fantastic. In Brown’s landscapes illusion disappears and there is no perspective: in them everything happens on the surface. It is a world made up of the history of painting, the indescribable engine of desire and artistic language itself, transformed into an authentic hedonist garden, in which images and brushstrokes merge without any hierarchical criteria. In the last ten years, Cecily Brown has exhibited her work at major galleries and museums in Europe and America. Edición bilingüe: Español/Inglés
