Edited by Sergio Risaliti.

The internationally lauded British painter Jenny Saville transcends the boundaries of classical figuration and modern abstraction in her depictions of the human form. Colossal naked bodies dominate her oeuvre, rendered with all the “imperfections” of flesh intact. Indeed, Saville is deeply interested in the resilience and fragility of the human body, as well as its societal implications and taboos. Collecting material from pathology textbooks, plastic surgery manuals, chronicles of injuries and burns and similar publications, Saville often adds an observational perspective to her work by attending surgery demonstrations and visiting butcheries. She expresses this perspective through an aggressive use of scale, brushy, wide strokes and textures that extend long figurative traditions in painting, linking her to the forceful modernist style of Willem de Kooning and Francis Bacon. Her work also dialogs with the masters of the Italian Renaissance, Michelangelo in particular.
This volume contains a rich catalog of Saville’s paintings and drawings from the 1990s to today, coalescing the different currents of her formal and conceptual approach.
Jenny Saville (born 1970) studied at the Glasgow School of Art in the late 1980s and early ’90s before becoming associated with the loose generational cohort of painters and sculptors known as the Young British Artists (YBAs). She showed in the Royal Academy of Arts’s famed Sensation: Young British Artists from the Saatchi Collection exhibition in 1997 alongside Damien Hirst, Tracey Emin and Sarah Lucas.

Published by Norton Museum of Art.
Text by Cheryl Brutvan, Nicholas Cullinan.

Recognized as an exceptional talent in the early 1990s, when she was just in her early 20s, British painter Jenny Saville (born 1970) has continued to renew and subvert the legacy of such masters as Rembrandt, de Kooning and Freud, with sometimes controversial interpretations of the human figure--primarily the female body--that expertly mingle the textures of paint and flesh. This volume, accompanying the first U.S. survey of the artist, includes already classic early paintings such as “Propped” (1992) alongside studies and more recent paintings and drawings on the theme of the mother and child. Saville’s brushwork reveals an increased dynamism and looser gesture. Extended critical commentary by Cheryl Brutvan and Nicholas Cullinan discuss Saville’s feminism and treatments of flesh throughout art history. Despite Saville’s fame, there have been few opportunities to view her mature work, a lacuna this volume happily corrects.

Jenny Saville & Glen Luchford: Closed ContactJenny Saville & Glen Luchford: Closed Contact

Published by Gagosian Gallery.
Essay by Katherine Dunn.

After having observed the operations of reconstructive surgery and aesthetic surgery, acclaimed figurative painter Jenny Saville was eager to express the violence and anesthetized pain of this experience in her own work. She and fashion photographer Glenn Luchford thus began an artistic collaboration that captures the full range of color, tonality, and topography of live flesh, in large photographic tableaux that portray Saville's own body. Distortions confront and coerce the viewer into an examination of his or her own body and the grotesqueries and beauties inherent within; the images likewise recall biological specimens preserved, disembodied, and disfigured. The collusion of the art and fashion worlds has produced many hybrids in recent years, yet none perhaps none as intensely striking as this series.
