Lydia Okumura

Lydia has been a fav for a while. I’ve thought of her as related to Light and Space with work like below, and much of her work is also minimalist as Sophie Haigney at Artsy notes when calling our attention to the rich history of women artists whose work is of this modality.

Polly Apfelbaum

Polly was one of the hits I remember from Abstract Painting, Once Removed. Her work is literally removed from the constraint of a traditional, rectangular canvas (like Rhia and Meg). Image below is from that time frame.
