I love painting.s I don’t know much about styles and other art world ‘esoterica’, I tend to have a visceral reaction to these things. If it grabs me from its visual consumption, I am good with that.
I discovered Njideka Akunyili-Crosby recently.
The above makes me happy, it speaks to me. This is a scene that looks like one I’ve experienced. And if not I can appropriate what she’s created because it is so familiar. Evocation, nostalgia…..
This piece is called ‘Then You Lost Me – 2013′. Art, when it makes you think, gives you joy, is a beautiful thing. I dig her work
