Missed her show at The Serpentine a few years back http://bit.ly/p8PFmY but every time I see her work in the flesh I want to see more.

Saw a couple of pieces by George Condo at Frieze yesterday and having since looked at more of his work I think he justifies a place in The Wall Pimper Hall of Fame (the lucky man…). He’s got an exhibition ‘Mental States’ starting next week at The Hayward, one to check out for sure http://bit.ly/hXnC4z .

I (Heart) Your Work #10

Posted in I (Heart) Your Work on December 21, 2009 by wallpimper

Andy Warhol’s back catologue is a technicolour homage to some of the most famous people ever to set foot on our planet.

Look beyond the hackneyed Marilyn image to the day-glo portraits of Elvis, Ali, JFK, Liz Taylor and Mick Jagger and try to imagine a world without Warhol’s influences.

What a dull place it would have been.

At first glance, Stella Vine paints colourful, pretty portraits of the rich and famous. But look a little deeper and you’ll find a darkness to her work and her subjects alike.

In today’s celebrity obsessed world, Vine asks, what price fame?

Tragically, the answer is provided by her choice of leading ladies: Elizabeth Taylor, Courtney Love, Amy Winehouse, Kate Moss and Princess Diana.

Portraits and nudes are Lucian Freud’s thing and his love of flesh is apparent not only in his work but in his personal life too (he has around 40 illegitimate kids http://bit.ly/4pr4Ob).

His paintings are raw, unforgiving and grotesquely beautiful.

In 2008 ‘Benefits Supervisor Sleeping’ sold for $33.6 million and in so doing set a world record price for a work by a living artist http://bit.ly/1L8XiT.

The buyer? Roman Abramovich, who now has a ‘Big Sue’ to add to his ‘Fat Frank’.

Until next time.

Needs no introduction.

The original and best, a legend in his own lifetime.

Like his subjects, John Currin is a little bit twisted.

Controversial and resolutely un-pc his work is permeated by massive tits, gay couples and porn.

He’s also a phenomenal painter who’s been described as a modern day Old Master.

I couldn’t agree more.
