LONDON.- Glenn Brown, one of the most acclaimed artists of his generation, will be Gagosian's featured solo exhibition at the Frieze Art Fair opening on Wednesday 14 October 2015. The exhibition will feature an entirely new aspect of Brown’s work - a selection of drawings on paper, polypropylene, and panels - together with exhibiting new sculptural work.

Known for his elaborately worked paintings and sculptures, Brown now takes up the medium of drawing to further intensify his engagement with the texture of surfaces and mark making. Over the last few years, drawing has become an all-consuming enterprise for Brown. Rather than being preparatory tools for individual works, his drawings are independent and complete entities, in which new ideas are constantly explored and the traditional boundaries between drawing and painting cease to apply. In doing so, he offer a bold reinterpretation of the age old tradition of copying historical objects as a learning process.

As in all of his work, Brown appropriates images from Western art history: Dürer, Gossaert, Greuze, Delacroix, Murillo and Rubens are all referenced here. Different types of lines, shadings and stokes swirl as Brown investigates the languages of image making, where the abstract and the visceral, the rational and the irrational, the beautiful and grotesque, churn in a dizzying amalgamation of reference and form.

Glenn Brown was born in Northumberland, England, in 1966. Solo museum exhibitions include Serpentine Gallery, London (2004); Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna (2008); Tate Liverpool (2009; traveled to Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin; and Museum Ludwig, Budapest, Hungary, through 2010); Upton House, Oxfordshire, England (2012); and Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem, Netherlands (2013–14). He was nominated for the Turner Prize (2000). His work was included in the Fiftieth Venice Biennale (2003); Ecstasy: In and About Altered States, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (2005); Mapping the Studio: Artists from the François Pinault Collection, Punta della Dogana and Palazzo Grassi, Venice (2009); 10,000 Lives, curated by Massimiliano Gioni, Eighth Gwangju Biennale, Korea (2010); Second Hand, Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris (2010); Riotous Baroque: From Cattelan to Zurbarán, Guggenheim Bilbao, Spain (2013); and Glenn Brown and Rebecca Warren: Collected Works, Rennie Collection at Wing Sang, Vancouver, Canada (2013); Post-Pop: East Meets West, Saatchi Gallery, London; and Visages: Picasso, Magritte, Warhol . . ., Centre de la Vieille Charité, Marseilles, France (2015). His work is represented in the collection of major museums including the Art Institute of Chicago, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, and the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris. Upcoming solo exhibitions will be held at the Des Moines Art Center in Iowa, traveling to the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 2016; Fondation Vincent van Gogh in Arles, in 2016; in 2017, Galerie Rudolfinum in Prague will organize an exhibition of important works. Brown lives and works in London and Suffolk.
