Cecily Brown, Jeff Koons, Charles Ray The Flag Art Foundation in New York

Ranging from lushly painted canvases to sculptures of extraordinary technical acumen, Cecily Brown, Jeff Koons, Charles Ray includes three artworks by each artist that address themes of youth, nostalgia, and intimacy, and highlight the intersection of innocence and subversion. Jeff Koons and Charles Ray's unprecedented approach to material, scale, and surface have redefined the possibilities of sculpture. Mining the rich psychological territory of childhood and familial relationships, both artists elevate innocent subject matter to monumental status. Cecily Brown explores youth and transience in kaleidoscopic compositions of fleshy, abstracted figures, utilizing the materiality of paint to replicate physical sensation and the illusion of motion. The exhibition will be on view until May 14, 2016 at the Flag Art Foundation, 545 West 25th Street. photographs by Scout Maceachron
