Cecily Brown – Night’s Noontime

Cecily Brown - Night's Noontime - 2020

Cecily Brown - Night's Noontime - 2020Brown’s etching for the Whitechapel Gallery, takes it’s title from a poem by Richard Dadd, the great fairy painter. As in her paintings, blades of grass criss-cross the picture plane to fragment and “crack” the image, here they split and divide the plane and loop moments or painterly “incidents”. One sees trees and ground and sky; birds dead and alive; a boar’s head; a parade; a skirmish of cartoonish bodies; distant smoke and fire, ink congealing into figuration, animals in the act of disappearing.
