A precise response to John Berger’s Ways of Seeing: John Currin’s nudes are currently on display at Sadie Coles South Audley Street.

John Currin Honeymoon Nude, 1998.

The American painter’s technically impressive canvases perfectly confuse and promote oppositions between past and present, neo-classicism and contemporary, viewer and voyeur, subject and object, etc, etc, etc…

A great show both visually and conceptually. Again, we wouldn’t mind a Currin nude feathering our nest
