Marlene Dumas

At the suggestion of my tutor, I had a look at the work of Marlene Dumas and I thought I would share it with you.
Born in South Africa in 1953 she now lives and works in Amsterdam, Dumas uses the human figure as a means to to critique contemporary ideas of racial, sexual, and social identity. The very rawness, tone and subject matter reminds me of the work of Lucien Freud and Jenny Saville but with a much looser more expressionist style.
