The British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969), based in New York since the 1990s, is one of the central figures internationally in the resurgence of painting since the turn of the century. Combining abstraction and figuration, she creates vivid, atmospheric depictions of fragmented bodies, often in erotic positions in the midst of swells of color and movement. Brown pays tribute to the potential of painting for seduction, and draws on references ranging from pornography to elements from the visual worlds of Bosch, Goya and Hogarth, and most recently motifs from the human disasters of our own time.
