Notes: PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE EUROPEAN COLLECTION

"It wasn't so much the use of sexual imagery that created a release, it was the attempt to bend and twist pictorial space. I wanted to get the figure off the ground, as in the earth, and integrate it more with the flat ground of the picture. That was probably when I first started trying to use ambiguous space, one that defied gravity. I wanted it to be impossible for the viewer to know where they stood in relation to the action." - Cecily Brown (Exh. Cat., Modern Art Oxford, Cecily Brown: Paintings, 2005, p.41)
