Painter Amy Crehore


Artist Amy Crehore's work feels like a Gauguin version of "Where The Wild Things Are," with her nudes hanging out in the jungle alongside monkeys, cats, lions and little kids dressed like clowns.


Her paintings on ukuleles sing a softer tune than her work on canvas, which seems to be making a comment about the male gaze—the women in the Oregon-based artist's work appear to be both aware of and indifferent to the masculine lust they inspire.
