Artist 5: Jenny Saville

Link: Jenny Saville (youtube montage)

It may be obvious already that I have a definite definite huge fascination with the grotesque in art. The next two artists on my list will also be indicative of that.

Jenny Saville, (my first female pick!!) is one of the most exciting painters of my life. She finds the macabre in ordinary situations and has the ability to create one of the most dynamic perspectives of the figure I have ever seen. To say the least, her work is gritty and it's just plain cool.

I definitely relate her to the works of Lucian Freud, who will be Artist Pick 7 and is pretty rockin'
