Artist and Studio

"Together, Mr. Currin and Ms. Feinstein have become the ruling power couple in today’s art world — perhaps the most potent marital pair since Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner in the 1950s”

Currin is 49 (or 50), has a BFA from Carnegie Mellon and an MFA from Yale. He has had retrospective exhibitions at the Whitney and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago and is represented in the permanent collections of the Hirshhorn and the Tate Gallery.  “Currin’s canvases, sensual mash-ups of Old Master figure painting and 1970s porn (which sometimes feature his wife) became certifiably blue-chip when one sold for $5.5 million at Sotheby’s in 2008.”

Currin’s wife, Rachel, is 41 and has a BA from Columbia. She “applied for a Master of Fine Arts from Yale University, but believes she was rejected because she wore a transparent plastic miniskirtand a T-shirt reading “I’m a Satisfier”.[w]  “Rachel is a sculptor whose works have collected some notable collectors.”
