Berthe Morisot

Armed with Madness: Mary M. & Bryan Talbot

The embarrassment of riches continues: I have been eagerly anticipating this since Mary started dropping hints last year. I am hoping to arrange an interview with the two of them, but anon — in the meantime let me tell you about this fabulous book. You’ll know (or should!) Mary and Bryan from projects like the…

Leonora Carrington: Revelation

I said an embarrassment of riches around Leonora Carrington, didn’t I? Well here’s glory for you: the catalogue from the exhibit this year that brought to public view many parts of her life that have not been seen before (if you’re not someone like Joanna Moorhead who did get to see them) like her home…

Surreal Spaces: Life & Art of Leonora Carrington

DMs on Instagram are mostly scammers, but I check them occasionally anyway because sometimes something great is there — like a message from Thames & Hudson asking if I’d be interested in an advance copy of this book. Yes, please! Like all T&H books it’s gorgeously produced, which allows you to see details in paintings…

Betye, Izzy, QoE & Me in Boston

I ran up to Boston with the Queen of Everything AKA the fabulous Stephanie to catch the Betye Saar exhibit at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. I think I first saw her work when I was living in L.A. but I don’t recall a whole exhibit devoted to her. What magnificence to see so much…

Welcome, Claverack Giant!

Who is the Claverack Giant? I am happy to reveal that I have received a CREATE Artist Grant for 2023 for a digital media art project ‘The Claverack Giant’ which is inspired by local folklore, archeology, a little fanaticism, poetry, and a good dollop of mystery. From my application: Did giants roam the Hudson Valley…

Leonor Fini at the Kasmin Gallery

Fabulous jaunt to the city with art partner in crime, Stephanie, to see the Fini works at the Kasmin Gallery and enjoy a nice long chat over a fab lunch at the Mermaid Café and a little Chelsea thrifting. Here’s the list of all the works on display. It was verrrrrry cold so not a…
