Announcing the unveiling of “The Triumph of Death,” a site-specific painting by artist Hollie Brown, in Lockhart, Texas, 30 minutes south of Austin.
The first known painting dubbed The Triumph of Death exists as a fresco in the Regional Gallery of Palazzo Abatellis in Palermo, dated around 1446, creator unknown. In 1562, Pieter Bruegel the Elder, inspired by the earlier fresco, painted a 16th century update, also titled The Triumph of Death. The third iteration is currently underway in the form of a site specific painting by American artist Hollie Brown.
In Brown’s work, cut outs from both the 15th and 16th century versions are pasted onto a color field, which was rendered in a slapstick manner via computer drawing programs. Images alluding to the sun and black holes, representing questions of life and alternate dimensions, take a center spot in her two seemingly identical murals, each over 25 feet long and 8 feet high.
Hollie Brown lives in Lockhart, Texas. She received her M.F.A. from the University of California, Riverside, and currently teaches at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.
