Honemoon Nude

John Currin, 1998

Currin's figure paintings, usually of women, have attracted attention and controversy. They combine cartoon-like distortion with an elaborate semi-illusionistic technique which simulates flesh by the laborious layering of colour with remarkable precision. He originally used photographs in high school year books as a source of inspiration.
