Alexander Nemerov and Hiroshi Sugimoto provide reflections about the artists work.

"I like my paintings to have one foot in the grave, to be not quite of this world. For me they exist in a dream world, a world that is made up of all the accumulated images stored in our subconscious that coagulate and mutate when we sleep." -Glenn Brown Mining art history and popular culture, Brown has created an artistic language that transcends time and pictorial conventions. He creates a space where the abstract and the visceral, the rational and irrational, the beautiful and grotesque churn in a dizzying amalgamation of reference and form.In paintings completed over the last three years, including some of his largest works to date, Brown confronts traditional subjects of still life and portraiture. With characteristically fleshy textures beneath remarkably flat and glossy surfaces, the scenes evoke traditional memento mori.
