THE ARTIST PROJECT: John Currin On Ludovico Carracci's The Lamentation

3:14

"It sets up rules and then contradicts them, and exists in a paradoxical state of real and unreal." The Lamentation is a great piece of work for the painter, John Currin, because it streams his thoughts to different places, and then back to himself. The oil painting is consistent in two places, once with Christ's human form, and the second with the elongated four figures.
