Betty Tompkins’ Fuck Paintings were begun in the early 1970s and are based on surreptitiously obtained hardcore pornographic magazines, feature gynecological close-ups of penetration, and are painted in an extraordinary and gorgeous monochromatic palette. This is sex, but on an Olympian scale; it’s a distanced and far-from-dumb view of heterosexual coupling, but none the less erotic for that. Text by Martin Herbert.
