jenny saville ---- The eye in this painting is displaying so much raw emotion. Along with the tones of red and pink the audience instantly recognises the sadness present. I want to create this same instant effect in my images.
Jenny Saville - One of the best painters in the world, in my opinion. She is highly regarded, too - and with good reason. I believe she has some affiliation/representation/ownership via Saatchi in London, which pretty much propels one to the top of the art food-chain pretty easily.
