Shared a link to Jasmine’s IG feed with a fellow abstractionist and she hit me back with a link to this page with images of Randy’s work. Which is whose? Click through to find out!

Sarah Crowner

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.

Heather Day

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.

Fran O’Neill

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.

Regina Scully

This one is a #TBT… I got the chance to see this show about 2 years ago when the family was in New Orleans. One of the most interesting exhibits I’ve ever seen, NOMA showed Scully’s work right alongside some Japanese prints, similar to the types which directly influence her work. Check out her website but most importantly, if you ever can, see some in the reals!
