Jenny Saville is a contemporary artist concerned with the human form." In her depictions of the human form, Jenny Saville transcends the boundaries of both classical figuration and modern abstraction. Oil paint, applied in heavy layers, becomes as visceral as flesh itself, each painted mark maintaining a supple, mobile life of its own. As Saville pushes, smears, and scrapes the pigment over her large-scale canvases, the distinctions between living, breathing bodies and their painted representations begin to collapse." (accessed from the Glasgosian website, June 2020). Territories was published on the occasion of her 1999 exhibition at the Gasgosian Gallery in New York.
