The artist Glenn Brown

  • Contemporary British painter and sculptor who reinterprets existing art.
  • Many of his paintings are characterised by the trompe l'oeil technique.
  • Since 2008 he has turned to etching in the course of which he created his Layered Portraits.

British painter and sculptor Glenn Brown was born in Hexam, England in 1966. After a foundation course at Norwich School of Art, he studied fine arts at Bath College of Higher Education, followed by a master's degree in the same subject at Goldsmith's College, University of London.

Today, Brown is known for his appropriative style. Existing works by artists such as Frank Auerbach, Georg Baselitz and Howard Hodgkin form the basis of his art. Brown then varies and reinterprets these appropriated images by changing their colour, position or size. Painting predominantly in oil on wood, his grotesque yet intriguing paintings appear impasto and expressionistic at first glance, but closer inspection reveals the thin brushstrokes applied in many layers, sometimes creating the illusion of an almost photographic flat surface. He also works with the trompe l'oeil technique on many of his paintings.

In contrast to Brown's flat works stand his sculptures, which are created by the accumulation of thick layers of oil paint on structures or cast bronze. Here, too, he refers to the works of other artists with form and colour combinations. Since 2008, Brown has been making »etchings on the computer«, which is how his so-called Layered Portraits came into being. These are up to 15 drawings and portrait etchings by great artists such as Salvador Dalí, Lucian Freud, Urs Graf and Rembrandt van Rijn, which he superimposes, digitally processes and thus creates a new work.

Due to his appropriative style, Brown, like many representatives of Appropriation Art, has been confronted with accusations of copying and plagiarism on several occasions. For example, his nomination for the Turner Prize in 2000 caused controversy because his painting looked very similar to a work by Tony Roberts. 

Der Künstler Glenn Brown

  • Zeitgenössischer britischer Maler und Bildhauer, der vorhandene Kunst uminterpretiert.
  • Viele seiner Gemälde zeichnen sich durch die Trompe-l'oeil-Technik aus.
  • Seit 2008 der Radierung zugewandt im Zuge derer seine Layered Portaits entstanden.

Der britische Maler und Bildhauer Glenn Brown wurde 1966 in Hexam (England) geboren. Nach einem Grundlagenkurs an der Norwich School of Art absolvierte er am Bath College of Higher Education ein Studium für bildende Künste, auf welches ein Masterabschluss im selben Fach am Goldsmith’s College an der University of London folgte.

Heute ist Brown für seinen aneignenden Stil bekannt. So stellen bereits vorhandene Werke von Künstlern wie Frank Auerbach, Georg Baselitz und Howard Hodgkin die Grundlage seiner Kunst dar. Diese angeeigneten Bilder werden von Brown dann durch Änderung der Farbe, Position oder Größe in ihren Eigenschaften variiert und uminterpretiert. Überwiegend mit Öl auf Holz malend, scheinen seine grotesken und doch faszinierenden Gemälde auf den ersten Blick pastos und expressionistisch, doch bei genauerem Hinsehen werden die dünnen, in vielen Schichten aufgetragenen Pinselstriche sichtbar, denen die Illusion einer fast fotografieflachen Oberfläche nachgesagt wird.

Zudem arbeitet er an vielen seiner Gemälde mit der Trompe-l'oeil-Technik. Im Gegensatz zu Browns flachen Arbeiten stehen seine Skulpturen, die durch die Ansammlung dicker Ölfarbschichten auf Strukturen oder Gussbronze entstehen. Auch hier nimmt er mit Form und Farbkombinationen Bezug auf die Werke anderer Künstler und Künstlerinnen. Seit 2008 fertigt Brown am Computer Radierungen an, so entstanden seine sogenannten „Layered Portraits“. Dabei handelt es sich um bis zu 15 Zeichnungen und Porträtradierungen u. a. von Größen wie Salvador Dalí, Lucian Freud, Urs Graf und Rembrandt van Rijn, die er übereinanderlegt, digital bearbeitet und so ein neues Werk kreiert.

Aufgrund seines aneignenden Stils wurde Brown schon mehrmals mit Kopie- und Plagiatsvorwürfen konfrontiert. So sorgte beispielweise seine Nominierung für den Turner Preis im Jahr 2000 für eine Kontroverse, da sein Bild einem Werk von Tony Roberts sehr ähnlichsah.
