Art In America

Glenn Brown

at Gagosian,
522 W. 21st St.

Produced over the past three years, these paintings and sculptures by British painter Glenn Brown are among his best. Referencing Renaissance and Baroque imagery and using a technique reminiscent of Surrealist painters like Dalí and Tanguy, Brown creates a hallucinogenic realm of esoteric meaning. Especially potent here are the outlandish sculptures, featuring found antique figurative bronzes, which he slathers over and nearly obliterates with globs of colorful oil paint.
