Jenny Saville

Jenny Saville
(according to Wikipedia)
is a controversial English artist famous for her
"monumental images of women".
Forgot where I came across her... probably while
reading a magazine somewhere.
Got the chance today to look up her work
and.. controversial is the right word to describe them.
I feel scared to look at them for too long
but I keep going back for second looks.
They're weirdly addictive.

Very controversial. I'm a bit over angst and "misrepresentation", suffering is art, etc, etc. I understand how ugly images can be beautiful in their perception but this is indulgent crap.
