Jenny Saville

This week I have been researching into Jenny Savilles early work.I am very interested in the fleshy female forms she creates. I am also fascinated by the scale she uses, In my opinion I think the scale of her work is what has the main impact on the audience. Saville uses memories from her childhood as inspiration for using the obese figures. To create her work she uses a combination of surgical imagery, photography of her own body and of her friends. She also uses mirrors to distort the body and change the angle the audience sees.
