John Currin - Thanksgiving

Oil on canvas
1729 x 1323 mm

Sarah Dale
This is such an interesting painting!

Terry Kelly
This is a great painting and I was surprised to read that John Currin had it sat around in his studio and tagged by him as a failed painting. It was an idea he had started before 9/11 and for reasons of his own left it unfinished. About that time his wife, Rachel, got pregant so in a way it became an allegory; taking nine months to finish. Rachel posed for the figures. In fact, there is a photograph of Rachel, pregant, posing in front of the painting.

the turkey is like porn, is almost too real, too fleshy - and it becomes obscene because of that, great piece

Don't think that turkey would have passed a doping test.
