Jenny Saville's "Continuum"

Jenny Saville isn't the kind of artist to be coy about the complexities of balancing motherhood and an art career. It's all over her paintings - particularly the work in her 2011 exhibition "Continuum," at Gagosian Gallery, which was made during and after her two pregnancies. The images here are self-portraits from the show depicting Saville struggling to hold onto her vigorously squirming kiddos. Can you relate? The Wall Street Journal gives an interesting glimpse into the series HERE.
