Widewalls noted Blast recently- it caught my eye. She’s on IG also.
As someone who loves works on all kinds of surfaces, too, these make me very happy!
Abstractmag has an article about Marie in the context of an upcoming exhibition of work she completed during a recent residency. Time well spent if you ask me. Please check out the other images in the article!
A friend sent me this interesting article from Vogue. I’ve been following Sarah’s brand of reinvigorated Modernism on Instagram so it was nice to have an excuse to learn a little more about her, especially that she does ceramic work using tile in addition to work with the American Ballet Theater. Glad to see talent having a deserved cultural moment.
Juxtapoz has an article up about Pour, a new show by Kathryn McNaughton (who I’ve followed for a while on Instagram) and Heather Day, who is new to me. The paintings are a result of a short sabitcal to focus on work in semi-solitude, which sounds fantastic, and impactful, since the main focus of her work is her synesthesia.
So glad to hear this show is happening, and at one of the most beautiful art venues in the US (if you love art and haven’t visited the Barnes Foundation in Philly get on it)! The first Steir I ever saw was at the Guggenheim (she was a fellow with their foundation btw). Wow.
I first encountered Fran’s work while Tumblr’ing, please check out her online gallery. I find these to be almost narrative- they impact me kind of like Lichtenstein’s brushstrokes which I always saw as comic book hero versions of brushstrokes being… well. Anyway, they all seem to tell a sort of story.
A friend turned me on to Erin’s feed on Instagram. She’s making photographs btw- if you thought they were paintings, you are into her subject matter. The use of these tensions is well planned, and she also deals deftly with compositional issues.
