Artist Hugh Brown appropriates recognizable and iconic fine art images, meticulously recreating masterpieces...then he puts in a chainsaw.

On May 2nd, 2009, The CSUF Grand Central Art Center presents Allegedly: The Hugh Brown Chainsaw Collection. Artist Hugh Brown brings together an astounding collection of artwork forgeries: a who's who of contemporary artists including; Ed Ruscha, Bruce Nauman, John Baldessari, Keith Haring, Robert Mapplethorp, Barbara Kruger, Roy Lichenstien, Diane Arbus, Jackson Pollock and many more, all meticulously crafted but with a strange twist...Chainsaws!
For the last eleven years Hugh Brown has been the Creative Director of Rhino Records, the best known and most successful archival and reissue design label in the world. His groundbreaking designs have garnered eleven packaging and design Grammy nominations and three wins. He has won over fifty other awards from Print Magazine, I.D. Magazine, Communication Arts, AIGA, and many others. Hugh has been a working artist for 35 years specializing in photography, printmaking and assemblage. He has had seven solo shows and been in many group shows including two at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and three at the Triton Museum of Art. One of his proudest moments was his second place finish in the Design a chair for BarbieCompetition sponsored by Vitra Design Museum, Metropolis Magazine, Mattell and W, not because of the second place finish but because the entry caused a fist fight among the judges.
