From Eyestorm: "This image features Jenny Saville and her sister leaning together as if they were conjoined twins, and is based on the same photograph that the artist's painting Hyphen of 1999 was derived from. This is Saville's first print, and it shows her exploring the new medium - the new technique producing an image that is instantly recognizable as Saville's work, yet distinctly different from her paintings. The print is constructed in layers, just like her paintings, but here a photo-based image is used: a black layer floated over the expressive fleshtones beneath.Jenny Saville was born in Cambridge in 1970. She is well known for her paintings and images of women or herself. During her end of year university show, Charles Saatchi purchased all of her artworks and commissioned her for the next few years. Saville was very interested in the flesh of the human form and observed many plastic surgery operations before collaborating with photographer Glen Luchford. This project saw Saville as herself the model, using a sheet of glass to squash and distort her flesh and photographs being taken from underneath the glass. The images were exhibited as photographs rather than paintings.Saville's focus has always been on the human form, how it can be represented and people with disformations or disease. Much of her work sees distorted flesh, high calliber brush strokes and patches of oil colour, whilst others combine the surgeons mark of a plastic surgery operation. Saville studied at the Glasgow School of Art and graduated in 1992 and graduated from The Slade school of Art in 1993, where she now works." Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 105716
