Wilfred Satty

Satty was part of the California art scene in the 1970s. You can see it in his work. It both reflects that time and seems a prisoner of it. Perhaps this is one of those cautionary tales. What seems cool at the time may age poorly. I know I have. Though my wife disagrees, the mirror has another story.

John Currin

15 04 2015

John Currin (born 1962) is an American painter based in New York City. He is best known for satirical figurative paintings which deal with provocative sexual and social themes in a technically skillful manner.[1] His work shows a wide range of influences, including sources as diverse as the Renaissance, popular culture magazines, and contemporary fashion models.[2] He often distorts or exaggerates the erotic forms of the female body. “His technical skills”, Calvin Tomkins has written, “which include elements of Old Master paint application and high-Mannerist composition, have been put to use on some of the most seductive and rivetingly weird figure paintings of our era.”
