The inspiration for Glenn Browns extraordinary paintings lies in the art of appropriation.
In his hands printed images taken from books or postcards, old masters and science fiction illustrations undergo audacious transition; they become flat, colours shift and the originals become a memory. Browns work exaggerates these processes to an extreme degree. In this film, John Myatt, a renowned forger, whose exploits have even landed him a spell in prison, takes a trip to Tate Liverpool to contemplate Browns work.
