Audrey Flack – one of the founders of photorealism painting

Audrey Flack, Chanel, 1974

Photorealism painting has that wow factor, paintings that capture the minute detail of photographs, and in the case of hyperrealistic paintings, seem to capture more than a photograph. There's a proliferation of this incredible work on the internet (not to mention in galleries and museums). But I found it interesting that there was only one woman, Audrey Flack, among the original photorealist painters. Audrey was born in New York in 1931 and is a painter, printmaker, and sculptor. You can learn more at Audrey's website, and below is a sampling of her modern, relevant, vibrant, and beautiful artwork that was created approximately three decades ago. .
