Deborah Brown

b. 1955, Pasadena, CA, USA. Deborah Brown is a Brooklyn-based artist whose ethereal paintings oscillate between closely rendered depictions of still lifes in the tradition of Dutch vanitas paintings and more dreamlike figurative compositions, with many works focusing on nude women in watercraft or on beaches. Brown often removes any presence of men from her tableaux, privileging the subjectivity of her women and subverting the male gaze. (Courtesy of Artsy).
