Spotlight: Audrey Flack

Audrey Flack is an artist who is well-known for her photorealistic paintings. Truly, she was one of the pioneers of photorealism, superrealism, and hyperrealism. In fact, before I wrote this post, that is all that I knew she was known for. Apparently, she has created some amazing sculptures based on goddesses and women from Greek stories that have a contemporary spin, like what she imagines they would look like if they lived in America. Her early paintings, with colorful and kitschy compositions, influenced Jeff Koons. Flack has been painting for more than 60 years!
