Repulsion in the Form: paintings by Jean Rustin

Lying in a delicate crack between vulgar and lovely, Jean Rustin’s paintings are incredibly delicate.

Using desaturated shades of gray and pastel brights, his repertoire consists of nude or partially exposed subjects, pale and wildly unattractive, in various acts of masturbation or sex. The subjects appear disconnected, always looking at the viewer in a mixture of defiance and shame. With washed-out bedrooms and checkered floors, the settings are evocative of a hideously sexual mental asylum, alluding to the carnal insanity that we all possess and silence.
