"The immediate appeal of Chelsea Lehmann's work is the fluid, supple and sneakily perverse quality of her paintings, at once referential to artists of the past, but also to the presentation of the female form in our age of pervasive online pornography — a neat double act that lends this most traditional subject of figuration an undeniable and contemporary feminist edge."
