Her art, like John Currin's, push around *the sense of gender,* *objectification,* *identity,* and formalities such as *response to portraiture,* and *color theory.*

Those two are probably my favorite modern figurative painters by far for those reasons.


Woof, your response is a great contribution to this debate because this is a painting of a young girl in awkward adolescence, looking at the image of a little girl on the wall through a strange and not wholly comfortable aura.

Here is a favorite John Currin:

'Patch and Pearl'




(His technique is excellent, this is a low quality reproduction)

(and he's done lots of nudes - so to see his figures clothed is now extremely interesting)

Penfield's Homunculus is a nude -





- a nude brain

**

Penfield was a groundbreaking researcher and highly original surgeon. With his colleague, Herbert Jasper, he invented the Montreal procedure, in which he treated patients with severe epilepsy by destroying nerve cells in the brain where the seizures originated. Before operating, he stimulated the brain with electrical probes while the patients were conscious on the operating table (under only local anesthesia), and observed their responses. In this way he could more accurately target the areas of the brain responsible, reducing the side-effects of the surgery. This technique also allowed him to create maps of the sensory and motor cortices of the brain (see cortical homunculus) showing their connections to the various limbs and organs of the body. These maps are still used today, practically unaltered. ~Wiki

Looks like he's steeling himself before jumping in cold water.

That is INCREDIBLE - I LOVE IT!

I just googled her other work and it's amazing, I would love to see it in person!!!

I love this sort of exploration of the body.

One of my favorite Met sculptures is a Kai Nielsen ceramic:

YES, I thought I remembered seeing one of her creatures in an art magazine that has babies emerging from pouches on its back:



So truly bizarre.
