Immerse yourself in the powerful – and sometimes unsettling – world of Hexham-born Glenn Brown and find out why he has become one of the most renowned British artists practising today.
Brown is famed for manipulating images from historic masterpieces, changing their shape, size and colour. The figures in his painting are often grotesque yet fascinating.
Among the artists he references are Fragonard, Dali and the North East’s own John Martin, famed for his dramatic landscapes.
Brown will premiere a series of works created specially for the Laing’s exhibition – and will delve into the Laing’s collection to present some of his favourite pieces.
