Glenn Brown creates an artistic language that transcends time and pictorial conventions. His mannerist instincts stem from the desire to breathe new life into the distant confines of historical form. Through references, appropriation and research, he presents a contemporary reading of images that are fixed in memory. His figures and landscapes, borrowed from the world of history
of art, are gradually transformed in exuberant entities. Different historic periods: Renaissance, Impressionism, and Surrealism, are blended in sophisticated compositions. Brown creates a space in which the abstract, the visceral, the rational and irrational, the beautiful and grotesque, come together in a frenetic amalgamation.
This book forms the catalogue of the exhibition to be held between June 10 and October 26 at the Museo Bardini in Florence. Alongside the renowned collection of the great nineteenth and twentieth century art dealer and collector Stefano Bardini, more than thirty works by Glenn Brown will be on
show, including paintings, drawings and sculptures. Some of the works have been created specifically for the exhibition and will be shown for the first time. This book offers comprehensive documentation and bears witness to this wonderful cultural event that places the city of Florence in the forefront in its promotion of contemporary art.
