Painter and sculptor Glenn Brown is best known for borrowing images from artists like Salvador Dalí, Frank Auerbach, and Rembrandt, as well as by the largely unknown graphic artists of mass-market science fiction paperbacks, and creating wild embellishments and transforming the familiar into the alien. Set against monochromatic backgrounds, his figures are often grotesquely enlarged and elongated. Represented in the 1997 exhibition “Sensation”, Brown is commonly associated with the Young British Artists (YBA) such as Gary Hume, Chris Ofili, and Peter Doig.
