There’s a kind of a distortion that happens with adoration. — John Currin
In a series of new portraits, Currin returns to his most beloved subject: women. These latest paintings demonstrate some persistent themes in Currin’s oeuvre, as well as a deep exploration of the genre of female portraiture. Characteristically, these women often appear as half-real, half-imagined, as though only part of the artist’s subject were held up to a distorting mirror, with the rest left intact.
John Currin was born in 1962 in Boulder, Colorado, and lives and works in New York.
