Delia Brown's "Having Arrived at C's Summer Home, F Gets Acquainted with Her New Room"
In a review in Artnet magazine, Hunter Drohojowska-Philip says that Delia Brown's new show at Angles Gallery in Culver City "conflates the allegorical manner of Jean Honore Fragonard with the saucy storytelling of Jacqueline Susann." The show is a narrative cycle of paintings based on the 1968 film, Les Biches, by Claude Chabrol.
About the painting above, Drohojowska-Philip says:
Brown's attention to detail makes each scene a pleasure. In the painting Having Arrived at C's Summer Home, F Gets Acquainted with Her New Room (2007-11), the young woman lies on a pink sofa next to a glass coffee table that contains a Yoshitomo Nara ashtray, an opened bottle of Diet Coke and a vase of flowers. Brown captures the reflection of light on all these accessories, the detail of some needlepoint pillows, and the lithe, light posture of the younger Felicity and the well-maintained beauty and tasteful jewelry of the older Caprice.
The show continues until April 7. Angles Gallery is located at 2754 S. La Cienega Boulevard.
