Courtney Love and Frances Bean Cobain #50 Tommy Cheng Painting

U.S.A, c. 1994
16 x 14 in (41 x 36 cm)
ID #TC-Z-50

Portrait of Courtney Love and Frances Bean Kobain, her child with then-husband Kurt Kobain. Tommy Cheng dresses both subjects in white and paints the same white hair on them, strenghtening the familial connection between the two of them with this use of shared color.

Tommy Cheng is a contemporary outsider and folk artist who lives and paints in Washington Heights. His unique style of portraiture has attracted gallery shows in New York, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Paris. Cheng's portraits are inspired by pop culture and celebrities. With its wide open eyes, deceivingly expressive faces, and modernly flat construction a Cheng portrait is instantly identifiable.
