the beauty of lines

Interesting piece in Burmese newspaper the Irrawaddy about painter Sandar Khaing, who paints figures and has a specific interest in fat nudes, through painting her sister as model.
I like what I can see of her work a lot.

"I just want to present lines, the beauty of lines."

  1. Hi Liz! You should look at Jenny Saville's paintings : http://www.google.com/images?client=safari&rls=en&q=jenny%20saville&oe=UTF-8&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1126&bih=800

    she does interesting work!

  2. hi Laura! Yeah, she really does. They are sort of a mixed experience for me, but she is definitely an amazing painter.
