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

Since 1999, Don Brown’s wife Yoko has been the subject of his delicate and naturalistic sculptures. The artist pursues a sculptural ideal in a classical tradition, without heroism or idealization, demonstrating his technical virtuosity and attention to the smallest of details. Photographing his sculptures as a way of documenting his practice, he gradually discovered a certain autonomy in the medium, “it’s as if everything is concentrated in a single view and the surface is uninterrupted”, says the artist. In his large-scale renderings of fruit and eggs, Brown also has explored the tradition of the still life.
