Venice: Marlene Dumas at The Central Pavilion

Venice: Marlene Dumas at the Central Pavilion

Dumas always risked becoming a materials fetishist, and here the variations on a theme seem exceedingly formal production,painting profs dream. Burdened by the image, treat it as token.  Is there real difference between these and Ann Craven besides a technical interest. Today, no longer painting, but a speed of working triumphs. This why painting dots so in fashion, we desire to become printers of our authorship. Production gaining important through its mass. Warhol's serial skulls mechanically mocked death, these ones are nice, pleasant even, fine.
These are pretty good.
