Today's Inspiration

I really like the artist John Currin.  I first heard of him maybe eight years ago when he was featured in Vouge magazine, and since then he seems to be everywhere.  When Karl and I were in Vienna we saw an exhibition at MoMuk called Bad Painting, Good Art, and the painting below, Thanksgiving Dinner, was on the posters all over the city.

I love the combination of Seventies kitsch and the distortion of the figures like you see in Medieval art, and the rawness of the colours and how there's something vulgar yet naive about his women.
