Jenny Saville, Painter of Modern Life

Rubens’ Flap, 1999, 10′ X 8′

“…in Britain, there has been a drive in art schools to describe and to rationalise what it is that you’re making, and that is a death knell to painting. Painting doesn’t operate like that. It works on all the irrational things.”

From an interview of British figurative painter, Jenny Saville in The Guardian, on the occasion of her first solo show in a public gallery in the UK.
