Delia Brown (American, b.1969), a figurative painter from Los Angeles, CA, is best known for exploring desire, wealth, and privilege within her works. Through art historical references and appropriated images, Brown’s work comments on the cluttered and empty bourgeois aspects of life. Her works depicting young women exude a sense of loss and meaninglessness, while her studies of mothers and children convey oppressive interiors lacking emotion and overwhelmed by useless objects. Brown attended the University of London, Goldsmith’s College, and received her BA from the University of California, Santa Cruz, and her MFA from the University of California, Los Angeles. The artist has held solo exhibitions at D’Amelio Terras, in New York, NY; the Margo Leavin Gallery, in Los Angeles, CA; and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, in Paris, France. Brown currently lives and works in New York.
