    About The Work

    Deborah Brown explores the body as a site of identity, fragmentation, and desire. In her new installment of work, the artist covers overtly exaggerated expressions of feminine sexuality with playful complicity and co-optation. Her pieces are at once a critique of, and participation in, the cultural colonization of the human body as a locus of desire and revulsion. Often bordering on the grotesque, her imagery hyperbolizes sexuality, the body's abject proximity to death, and the psychologically irreconcilable nature of biologically essentialist demands. For Brown, the body is a site of failure and ful llment, excess and deprivation, vanity and humiliation: a corporeal manifestation of the ego's psycho-spiritual struggle.
