Marilyn Minter has long been one of the most talented and alluring of hyperreal painters, and her depictions of the female form are almost surreal in their finished state. Now, well, she has focused her attention on pubic hair, both in painting and photography, and we mean lots of pubic hair, in a new book called "Plush," for which there were only a limited edition of 500 printed with 10 deluxe copies, published by Richard Prince's Fulton Ryder book shop.

South Korean artist Choi Xooang shows us the realism of the human emotion frozen in an instant. The flow of life through polymer clay figures breathes the difficult reality we face today if Man does not confront the outer world. Choi personifies what he feels inside canalized by every emotion in a multidimensional way.

Ask Jen Mann where she likes to spend the majority of her time and the answer comes easily: “my studio.” Other answers, however, are not so quickly accessed.

Somewhere, Ernest Hemingway is happy. And perhaps a littly tipsy. Perhaps both. In the spirit of "The Sun Also Rises," or maybe a connection we are just making in our own heads because of the subject matter, French artist Christian Gaillard has been painting this intricate and stunning portraits of bullfighters since the 1980s.
