Nonggirrnga Marawili

taps the Earth for her materials and muses. Her works—prints, works on paper, paintings on bark, and larrakitj (memorial poles made from the bark of eucalyptus trees)—are often made with natural ochers that coalesce in spontaneous webs of lines and dots. The resulting works are ethereal, expressive interpretations of water.

Cy Twombly

One of my favorite things about living in Houston was visiting the Cy Twombly gallery at the Menil museum. I can’t think of many other artists whose work can create the kind of visceral connection that his does- I think of it first when discussions veer towards work that is beyond words or language.

BTW- you should also check out this good read about the importance of time he spent with Robert Rauschenberg.
