Richard Prince. Nurse Paintings

Nurse of Greenmeadow, Dude Ranch Nurse, Jet Set Nurse, Tender Nurse, Washington Nurse, Aloha Nurse, New England Nurse, Surgical Nurse, Man-Crazy Nurse, Nympho Nurse, Park Avenue Nurse… So many pulp novels, so many nurses, so much acrylic paint dribbled and masked over their silk-screened mouths, eyes, hair, ubiquitous white uniforms. Constrained sexuality? Bloodsucker art? Richard Prince–Conceptual artist, bibliophile, reinventor of the Marlboro Man–has done it again, in this, his latest series of paintings. You can never be sure just what he’s done, and why it feels so creepy, but there you have it. And all wrapped up with a compulsive bedside manner.
