The Mike Weiss Gallery in New York is representing the artist Deborah Brown.
The work of Deborah Brown mixes history, literature and mythology which integrate together in a world of fantasy and subjectiveness. In some series, she uses images drawn from romantic and modern art. Playing on the mechanism of recognition and distortion, she uses iconic images in an unexpected context creating anthropomorphic characters. Assuming a humanist posture, she explores a wide range of emotions, going from despair to joy. Using this process, she reminds the viewer that the images are only distorted from human appearance and allow art and life to be intimately linked.
The gallery presents a group show entitled ”School’s Out !” from 23 June to 6 August, with Deborah Brown, Jerry Kearns, Liao Yibai, Thrush Holmes.
