Skulldiver III (Flightmask), Cecily Brown, 2006

A large swath of pinky flesh-tones drips and sags as the canvas’s main attraction. The color scheme is what I love most. That’s all this painting really is anyway– random slashes and markings in colors that barely seem to go together in some places. The top layer of paint is raised, built up and sometimes too thick. Above the fleshy X is a closed pair of eyes, the eyelashes nearly lost in the color, but the thick dark eyebrows give them away.

Oil on linen.
