About the work
Don Brown
British, b. 1962
Follow

Don Brown is a sculptor best known for his dedication to varied depictions of his wife, Yoko. Since 1999, Brown has been producing three-quarter or half-scale portraits of Yoko using a classical tradition of representational sculpture, but without heroism or idealization. The figure, almost always with downcast or closed eyes, appears in various states of dress—sometimes obscured entirely in a sheet. Brown is perhaps most celebrated for his technical virtuosity, demonstrated by the freestanding balance and pristinely smooth surfaces in both bronze and acrylic works, and his attention to minute detail. Brown also has explored the tradition of still lifes in his large-scale and sensuous renderings of fruit and eggs. More recently, he has also begun to work with drawing in pastel, which also feature Yoko as its sole subject.
