Paint Made Flesh

While researching Jenny Saville, I ran across what looks to be a fantastic traveling exhibition, put on by the Frist Center in Nashville. Paint Made Flesh will be at The Phillips Collection (Washington, DC) from June 20-Sept. 13, 2009, and at Memorial Art Gallery (Rochester, NY) from Oct. 24-Jan. 3, 2010. Wish there was some way to travel to see this show! Looking at the images reminded me of how much I love working with the figure, though I've moved away from figurative work over the past few years.

  1. Hey Jill!
    I, too, heard about this exhibit on NPR in June. Sounds cool & wish I could get to it as well. Looking online isn't the same......
    Carry on, friend!
