Paintings by Liz Brown.
Hahaha I am cracking up at these and I don’t know why.
Somehow this reminds me of playing GTA, awesome ;p
Loving liz. The first one is def the strongest one.
Haha, Patrick, it gets even funnier just thinking about the sort of mind or upbringing that caused her to be so completely fixated on the act of jumping vans or whatever, you know, top notch, to meet a woman facinated by jumping a vans, in a king of the hill backwoods evil kenivel white family on welfare sort of fashion, I love it, I want to meet this chick and rock out to van halen with her, hehe.
Dude are you on something?
Excellent ! I don’t really “understand” the first one, but it’s ok :p
While there is a simplicity to the application of the work, I really enjoy the absurdity in the subjects and situations Brown paints. What I find really interesting is that the subjects appear very loud and spontaneous, however the paintings themselves feel quiet and calm. I find this mixture of subdued vs. spontaneous action very compelling! Thanks for the images!
I really like the top painting with the UFO. There is clearly a hidden meaning to the image but I can’t fathom what it is…
