Malcolm Liepke

There is something about this man's work that I love. I can't put my finger on exactly why really. The subjects are rather plain, the faces of the women generic within themselves. The colors Liepke uses are luminous, his figures ambiguous. I think it's the loose, painterly style he uses, which reminds me of Freud, without the disorienting distorted qualities. His subjects seem more 'real', even in their generic-ness.
