    their attitudes upfront, but their nature ambiguous. so human nature.

  • emilyrugburn

    I love thick,textured painting…
    it add incredible depth and character to the paintings

  • Some of them remind me of magazine cut-out collage we did in High School art class. Great Work!

  • All of the abstract-ness comes together to be remarkable.

    They are good, but i feel like the borrow way too much from jenny saville especially the third image in relation to this jenny saville painting ‘stare’ http://30.media.tumblr.com/ZUZV4V3Fink8d8fpJqOOK1URo1_400.jpg

    i think the abstract elements contradict the tight and deliberate painting of the eyes, like the artist is afraid to go totally abstract and expressionistic (kind of like frank auerbach) and retains some illustrative quality, which is a little disappointing as i feel it cheapens the work somewhat. Also i’m not sure why the artist has chosen to paint like this, it makes sense for saville and her concept and subject matter (a very literal falling apart/deconstruction of the human body) but not sure it does in this context (what looks like straight self portraits?) but i have to admit i dont know the whole story behind the works, but again the artist doesn’t give me much to go on.

    Not everything has to be totally readable and realistically portrayed, but not everything has to be wild brush strokes and drips that have nothing to do with the concept either.

    • c.o

      shut up stupid ‘ROH’, the quality of paint is incredible I’m sure you couldnt paint like this, not everything has to be based on concept or have a reason for the way the brush strokes are portrayed. Clearly an arrogant twat trying to display to people that you have some kind of knowledge of artists who cant’t appreciate skill and ability because talented artists with canvases as refined as this are rare. Keep your snooty comments to yourself. No one cares. P.S. it’s so pretentious how you’ve put the link to Jenny Saville on your comment. Get over yourself
