Roger Brown


Buzzin' Bridges, 1974

Roger Brown, at DC Moore. Haven't seen any Roger Brown since visiting Robert Cozzolino's excellent show in Philadelphia two-plus years ago... I love those Chicago artists, and the artists they were inspired by. This was in the same building as the Jess show at Tibor de Nagy, around the corner from Present Tense at Spanierman Modern. Trifecta.

Alexi Worth will be showing at DC Moore in November.


Heavy Cloud Mask, 1989


Fall Out at Three Mile Island, 1979

Oil on canvas. Wow. Inventive as hell.

Barnaby said...

Deadline is July 31st. I just have to put the title on the crown (today) and then get 'im photographed. I think I can actually even enter without the photo as long as it's in by final deadline..

Great moth pics! Gotta love the Hairy Who...I sometimes contribute to a painting blog and wrote a short piece on the DC Moore show a few weeks back (along w/ some info on Joseph Yoakum):

It's amazing to me that more artists aren't aware of his work.
