Ode to Jenny Saville
Narrative: This poem represents my mother's reaction to my sculpture: I don’t know why you make ugliness! The bottom border embodies your baking – your womb. In the center, your six children – fetuses. And on the top right, your father – fond of fishing. Your braids as a kislány – innocent. Days later … Look, I’m sorry I said your art was ugly. Why can’t you make realistic art? without abstractions
