Pablo 07 Jenny Sevil

         Jenny Seville is another British painter a lot like Lucian Freud. Her paintings focuses on the body while dabbling with skin tones and positioning as well.  Despite her daring subject matter I find Seville rather intriguing because of her technique, her use of color and brush strokes are beautiful even if her figure isn’t always. Seville pushes the boundaries beauty and grotesque with strong use of reds and pink creating fleshy, bruised or bloody images as well as distorting the body. Some of her paintings are the replication or study of women pushed up against glass and the awkward positions, folds, and shapes the body takes when place in that situation. Another common focus of her subject matter is transgender people, men with breast or women with penis.
