I first came across the paintings of Christopher Brown in the book 10 + 10, which was published in conjuction with the exhibit of the same name in the late 80's or early 90's. The show featured the art of ten american artists juxtaposed with that of ten Russian artists. Eventually, I had the opportunity to see Brown's work at a major museum and I've kept track of his output ever since. The video featured here offers some valuable insight into his thought process and working methodology.
More work by Christopher Brown can be seen at John Berggruen Gallery.
