Betty Tompkins: Raw Material

Introduction by Alison Gingeras. Text by Géraldine Gourbe. Interview by Anya Harrison.

Betty Tompkins: Raw Material

A revelatory, long-overdue survey of the bold and explicit feminist painting of Betty Tompkins, from the late 1960s to the present

This first monographic work on the New York–based feminist painter Betty Tompkins (born 1945) presents around 50 paintings and drawings made during her career. Tompkins is best known for her large-format Fuck Paintings, a series launched in 1969 depicting close-up sex, the source images of which are taken from pornographic magazines. The series is famous for having been censored many times.
In this and other series, such as the Cunt Paintings and Pussy Paintings, Tompkins uses a cold and restricted palette of black, white and gray for the pornographic images that she appropriates. Stylistically close to photorealism, the images are cropped and produced with an airbrush on pastel backgrounds. Sometimes the artist covers up the image with misogynistic texts.
Although her paintings were rarely shown, due to their explicit content, Tompkins has influenced a younger generation. Since the 1970s, she has tirelessly questioned what determines the codes of representation of female bodies. This work thus takes on a new dimension within the framework of the recent #MeToo movement.
In this essential volume, collages and drawings reveal Tompkins' work processes, highlighting her grid work, a major synthesis of minimalism and formalism. Among the works on paper, the 2014 Photo Drawings series is unveiled here for the first time.
