artist: marlene dumas


Lately I've been loving the work of painter Marlene Dumas

Marlene Dumas, Intimate Relations, 2007


  Marlene Dumas, Jule-Die Vrou, 1985

I first became interested in Dumas' work when I was introduced to her series on paintings based off of autopsy photos. Her most famous one is below, referenced from the autopsy photo of Marilyn Monroe:
