“When We Return You Won’t Recognise Us”

colorful surrealist impressionist painting of a woman with crazy hair

I do not remember how I stumbled upon this painting by British artist Glenn Brown but I like it quite a lot. You can check out more of his work on his website.

Oh yes! I saw this exhibit at the Gagosian here in NYC. Was amazing.

Hit me up if you're interested in NYC Art Gallery Tours.

This style of art reminds me of the stuff that Hi Fructose magazine curates.

I've always wanted to see his work in person, but the planets haven't conjured that for me yet. Someday! Brown's work, like Andreas Gursky or Rothko, seems like IRL is the best place to view it.
