"John Currin's paintings sit at the crossroads where Old Master painting technique and 20th-century kitsch collide. His figurative paintings mix humour with traditional painterly skills and have earned him comparisons with artists ranging from Breugel to Rockwell. This monograph is a major survey of Currin's career, featuring his work since 1989."--Amazon

One of the leading figurative painters of his generation, Currin's influences range from Italian and Northern Renaissance paintings to popular illustrations from the mid-20th century. Whether portraits of older women, buxom girls, nudes with elongated bodies, or group scenes of domestic life, his works are characterized by baroque gestures, loose brushstrokes, unorthodox palettes, and detailed backgrounds that startle the viewer into a reconsideration of the tradition of painting. His "old master" techniques and individual style have earned him accolades from critics and collectors worldwide

Orphaned and raised by wolves, She-Wolf (Davidson) leads her female gang of ultra-Amazons across Iowa on a quest for girl babies which she intends to kidnap and turn over to wolves for feral upbringing. She-Wolf envisions a generation of totally fearless females tough enough to subdue the entire male population. Her trouble begins when she falls for Biker Bruce (Le Mat), the leader of a male motorcycle gang called the Bourne Losers who have traveled across the country righting wrongs as they search for a really good light beer. A send-up of motorcycle gang B-movies of the early 1970's
Lives of the artists by Calvin Tomkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Lives of the Artists ten major artists are captured in Tomkins's cool and ironic style to record the new directions art is taking during these days of limitless freedom. As formal technique and rigorous training continue to fall away, art has become an approach to living. As the author says, "the lives of contemporary artists are today so integral to what they make that the two cannot be considered in isolation." Among the artists profiled are Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst, the reigning heirs of deliberately outrageous art that feeds off the allegedly corrupting influences of capitalist glut and entertainment; Matthew Barney of the pregenital obsessions; Cindy Sherman, who manages multiple transformations as she disappears into her own work; and Julian Schnabel, who has forged a second career as award-winning film director. Tomkins shows that the making of art remains among the most demanding jobs on earth.--From publisher description
