MARLENE DUMAS "FACELESS" SILKSCREEN, 1993
Marlene Dumas (b. 1953) is a South African-born artist who pioneered a revival in figurative painting at the end of the 20th century.
Dumas has fearlessly depicted individuals and subject matters that are subtly provocative, slightly unsettling...yet always intriguing and beautiful. She is known for her images of children, vulnerable women and both conflicted or victimized men.
This iconic silkscreen from the early 1990's encapsulates many of the contradictory themes inherent in her work; is this an image of child play or something more sinister?
Typical of her style and aesthetic the image suggests being realized in watercolor.
Dumas, currently based in Amsterdam, is one of the most collected living female artists. Her work can be found in collections such as the MoMA (NYC), the Tate (London), the Art Institute of Chicago and Centre Pompidou (Paris) to mention a few.
