Jenny Saville

Whilst searching on YouTube for techniques to help me with my drawing, I remembered Richard talking about a Jenny Saville video which demonstrated her painting skills and he had struggled to find it again. I also tried to find it but was unsuccessful,
One of the reason I have used Saville as part of my research is because I find it fascinating why she would want to paint such shocking images which are very fleshy, uneasy and quite grotesque most of the time.

I found the following interview with Saville very interesting and he views on feminism and how art seems to be more male dominated and this in fact stopped her from painting for a while.
