About Cecily Brown

Cecily Brown (English, b. 1969) presents a world that pulses with excesses and appetites. She explores the breadth of human experience in tactile oil paintings, works on paper and prints. Inspired by Willem de Kooning among others, Brown positions her subject matter within a new aesthetic reality. Brown has said of her work, "my process is quite organic and starting a painting is one of the best parts for me. I always start in quite a loose and free way."
