First monograph.
Large-size figures of unfired clay, which grotesquely exaggerate the characteristic traits and trademarks of female sexuality such as breasts, calves and buttocks, have made a name for British artist Rebecca Warren (born in 1965 in London).
Rebecca Warren's oeuvre frankly references a veritable array of masters from the history of art: Degas, Rodin, Boccioni, Picasso, Fontana, the German Expressionists, and Neo-Expressionists such as Robert Crumb. It also brings to mind the works by Martin Kippenberger, Fischli & Weiss' clay sculptures, and the hostile and eye-striking aggressiveness but substantive subtlety of Sarah Lucas' works.
Rebecca Warren's art likewise unites popular culture and advanced civilization, feministic and psychological debate.
