Don Brown: Yoko I–XXXIIIDon Brown: Yoko I–XXXIII

Published by Other Criteria.

Yoko I-XXXII, focuses on Don Brown's series of sculptures of his wife Yoko, which have been ongoing throughout his career. Don Brown's art explores questions of representational perfection. His sculptural vocabulary harks back to classical antiquity and the elegance and idealism of neoclassical marbles such as Canova's The Three Graces (1814-17), while also invoking modernist realism as instanced by Degas' La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans (1881). In Brown's distinctive take on classical sculpture, the place of an idealised heroine is taken by the real-life figure of the artist's wife in a casual pose. Yoko becomes a conflation of the generic and the individual.

Don Brown: YokoDon Brown: Yoko

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Essay by Sara Harrison.

Reduced to half or three-quarter scale and rendered nude in pure white, Brown's wife Yoko is an eerily childlike muse. Entwined with a fictional twin and juxtaposed with dialogue like "Take your knickers off," she's Lolita all the way. These 20 sculptures appear interspersed with short texts from artists, critics, collectors, curators and friends, among them Stefan Kalmar, Gregor Muir, Richard Prince, Norman Rosenthal and Rudolf Sagmeister.
