martha rich's work always makes me feel normal. she's like the miranda july of the art world. she just paints it as she sees it. doesn't dress it up, and certainly doesn't dress it down ( a lot of her recent paintings have glitter on them, and we all know how we like glitter.). martha's continual commentary on beauty culture, again, makes me feel moderately normal about my inadequacies as my brain opts to see it sometimes. sometimes. what i wouldn't do to own a piece of martha's. if i got paid like a normal person, i would so take her up on her current buy two get one free offer on freedom wig right now. because i can't, you should. come on! ok, that's unhealthy and codependent. but i'll be your bff if you do it. i promise. ok. FINE. well, will you at least give me your free painting?
