Eight short films explore the fine line where art and pornography intersect. The films highlight controversial issues about the representation of sexuality in art; opening up debate of the question whether art can be disguised as pornography or whether pornography can be represented as art or something else altogether

Broadly inspired by the history of painting - from Rubens and Veronese to the muscular expressionism of Willem de Kooning - Brown's personal vision transcends classical notions of genre and narrative, freeing subject matter from its original context and positioning it within a new aesthetic reality

"New York-based British painter Cecily Brown (born 1969) makes sumptuous oil paintings combining abstract and figurative elements, art-historical references and erotic, fragmented bodies in compositions so densely layered that one of Brown's paintings can look "like an enormous colored anthill, with thousands of insects following each other, climbing over each other, hiding and reappearing, leaving colorful traces of their movements," as Danilo Eccher writes in his catalogue essay. This substantial monograph is published to accompany Brown's survey exhibition at the Galleria Civica d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Turin, and features nearly 50 works, including paintings, works on paper, gouache and watercolors as well as seven monotypes, representing the range of Brown's work as well as its unifying concerns. Also included are newly commissioned essays by Danilo Eccher, Alessandro Rabottini and Anna Musini."--Amazon.com, viewed 7/6/2015

Cecily Brown & Jim Lewis. The English garden by Jim Lewis( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Like nature, only better. Nature with all the awkward bits smoothed out. And then picturesque, like a landscape painting, states Jim Lewis' protagonist, defining an English garden in Cecily Brown's newest book of paintings. An imaginative pas de deux, The English Garden sees British painter Brown (born 1969) and American writer Lewis (born 1963) contribute acutely detailed and darkly sensuous allusions to the traditional 18th-century English landscape garden. Thirty-nine of Brown's paintings are interspersed throughout this compact hardcover publication as tipped-in images. The largely abstract works, with glimpses of figurative elements, are a dichotomy of warm and subdued strokes of color, each containing an expansive landscape unto itself. Novelist and critic Jim Lewis' story transports the reader to the English countryside and investigates the seductive pull of the natural world in tandem with Brown's paintings. Combining two major voices in contemporary literature and painting, this volume is a truly gorgeous production

"Cecily Brown creates lush, visceral canvases based on a combination of figuration and abstraction. Her technical proficiency has earned her comparisons to Lucian Freud, Willem de Kooning, and Francis Bacon, yet it is her unique ability to convey the pleasurable and fleeting aspects of sensation that drive her work." "Cecily Brown rapidly rose to success in the late 1990's, and was credited with having contributed to the resurgence of painting at the turn of the millennium. With a visual repertoire indebted as much to the classical themes of the old masters as to porn magazines and Hollywood films, Brown's paintings challenge traditional interpretations and compel us to reconsider the act of painting from a decidedly feminine viewpoint."--Jacket
