Catalogue Note

“If I had to place where it all comes from, the moment that interests me the most in twentieth-century painting, and which I feel was not taken that far because abstraction happened in such an extreme way, is the moment when Rothko, Gorky, and Newman were doing those biomorphic things that just hovered on the edge of representation. They’re not quite abstract and they are absolutely grounded in the figure.” Cecily Brown
