The Ladies

So, I'm bored and just wanted to write something that I've thought about from time to time over the past few years. I've noticed that most of my favorite painters out there today are consistently ladies. Sure, there are tons of dudes doing amazing stuff but for me, being into traditional painting (maybe more specifically figure painting) and wanting to see it move forward with originality and awesomeness, these ladies are doing the things right now that hit me the hardest. It seems that this has not always been the case. anyway, who knows but i just thought id share this amazing opinion that i have. So here's a few of my favorite girls who i think are by far kicking the most ass in the world of contemporary figure paintings, feel free to set me straight. ok, have a good weekend.

Jenny Saville















Ann Gale

















Sophie Jodoin

















Dana Schutz
