Five years ago, painter Jenny Saville, known for her giant images of naked, elephantine women, collaborated with Glenn Luchford on a series of large-scale colour photographs. These pictures depict Ms Saville with face smushed against a pane of glass, the folds of skin echoing those in her paintings. This month, Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills displays this suite of pictures as a group for the first time (12 January-February). At 6 feet x 6 feet, the photographs’ impact is increased by their monumentality; plexiglass boxes encase the prints, giving them a weighty sculptural quality.
