Deborah Brown ‘Runaways’ at Geary Contemporary

Geary Contemporary is pleased to present Runaways, a solo exhibition of recent paintings by Bushwick based artist Deborah Brown. The exhibition will be on view from September 7 through October 14, 2017. The gallery will be hosting an opening reception for the artist on Thursday, September 7 from 6-8 pm. This will be Brown’s first solo exhibition with the gallery.

This exhibition will display a series of work in which Brown utilizes the post-industrial landscape of her surroundings as the starting point for narrative, where a female protagonist, her dog, and various avian companions move through urban to pastoral settings. Thick daubs of paint applied with a palette knife
are punctuated by linear passages and off-register color patches, offering a fractured, brooding landscape that navigates an exotic and unfamiliar world. Seen as a whole, Runaways channels feelings of abjection, strength, freedom, and empowerment.
