Appropriate, a recent collection of works by Sydney artist, Cash Brown is currently on display at Robin Gibson Gallery, Darlinghurst. The exhibition is comprised of various works on canvas which appropriate Gustave Courbet’s infamous vaginal painting Origin of the World, 1866. While utilizing this image as a central source of inspiration, Brown has also incorporated influences from other western artists, painting Courbet’s figure in the style of Tom Wesselmann‘s pop art nudes, integrating fish used in John Currin’s The Moroccan and utilizing geometric Suprematist imagery ala Kazimir Malevich.
Brown received her BFA from National Art School, Sydney and has had her work extensively exhibited on a national scale at institutions including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney, Greenhill Galleries, Adelaide and MOP Projects, Redfern. She is currently the coordinator of Off the Wall, a showcase of works by unrepresented Australian artists, taking place as part of The Weekend Australian Art Sydney, Art Melbourne and Art Brisbane.
