Art critic John Yau answers the question "why can't we see her eyes?"
These are two paintings by Philip Guston who has always been a favorite of mine. Guston died in 1980 and is often talked about in reference to his 3 extreme style changes that he went through over the course of his career. His ability to re invent himself along with sheer brutal force of his paintings have created a certain bench mark for any one who picks up a brush to make a picture.
For a more in depth look at Guston this review by John Yau of a recent exhibition is a good read.
