It's hard to say what my favorite posts have been. I publish what I love for the most part, so to pick would seem weird. But I def have a few stunners in mind I want to share this week. The first is Christy Langer. Her show, Meticulous Engagements along side Kris Kuksi here in SF at The Shooting Gallery was a beaut. Her sculptures are at once gorgeous and menacing. Here are a few images from a Q&A I did with the Toronto based artist in March and a few pics I took at the show.
As I mentioned yesterday, I'll be mixing it up and posting a bit differently this week. I'll be sharing posts about things that inspire me and giving old posts a run again, just for kicks. I'll also be posting some new content, but not as much as normally I may kick it into next week, I'm not sure yet. I'll keep you posted. ;)
I figured a good place to start is with Margaret Kilgallen. She is most definitely an all time hero of mine and I don't know too many creative types who haven't been inspired by her in some way. I posted a remixed vid from the Art: 21 series, that somebody uploaded onto youtube. Sadly, everytime I try and watch it on Art: 21's site my browser crashes. Maybe you'll have more luck.
I think what I love most about Margaret's work is how she mixed so many different styles within her work. From folk to graffitti to sign painting to her own original style and on. Margaret was one of the first female artists I learned about who wasn't on the contemporary artist tip (ie: Jenny Holzer, Sofie Calle, Tracey Emin, etc) that had been stepping outside the lines of what was expected. She was a true maverick.
What do you like most about Margaret's work?
