One Year With Most Triumphant: Paintings by Liz Brown
Liz Brown.

WILLIAMSBURG, NY.- Like the Spice presents Most Triumphant: Paintings by Liz Brown, opening Friday June 22nd in conjunction with the celebration of its one-year anniversary. Time freezes and history sits silent in this collection of majestically deadpan paintings. Building on her successful first New York solo show at Kathleen Cullen Fine Arts in Chelsea this exhibition features work from several new series.

Ms. Brown’s recent paintings troll the shallow pool of memory to see if we really catch much in our day-to-day experience. Dinosaurs, battleships, miraculous vans, an indoor undersea paradise, and a machine with all the answers populate this exhibition. Ships stage epic battles against a vast and empty ocean. Vans make Duke’s of Hazard style jumps and drift off towards heaven. Natural and artificial histories battle each other in chilly silence. Even the forest seems air-conditioned as painted by Brown. The once and future king of the thunder lizards, deposed, stands watch over his diorama.

These epics flattened onto canvas refuse to have their grandiosity distilled out of them, retaining all the resonance of echoes. To make immemorial the victors of nature and society, and transmute them into living fossils Brown edits out the cobwebs. As George Bernard Shaw said, ”If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you’d best teach it how to dance.”

Liz Brown has shown in California, Maryland, Connecticut and New York. She has been included in three previous group shows at Like the Spice. In 2005 she was a Space Program recipient of the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the New York Public Library Print Collection, the Connecticut Commission on the Arts and the Housatonic Museum of Art in Bridgeport Connecticut. She earned her MFA from the Mount Royal Graduate Program at the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2004. Since then she has taught at the Montpelier Cultural Arts Center in Laurel, Maryland and at Corcoran College of Art and Design in Washington DC. Currently Liz lives and maintains her studio in Brooklyn.
