There's always lots of art to see, but lately I've added lots of women artists to my wishlist to see! So I thought I'd highlight these women; some well known and thought about for years, others unknown and waiting to be discovered.

--Free, abstract, colourful, automatic, spirit watercolours by this Spiritualist Medium painting in the mid-late 19th Century.
Mona Hatoum at Tate Modern, London
--Contradictions, energy and emotion pulsate through simple conceptual juxapositions.
Georgia O'Keefe at Tate Modern, London
--Big Stunning Flowers Y-E-S, but also New Mexico landscapes and skulls.

I've been working on some sketches & paintings of windows lately looking at the division between outside/inside, secure/insecure, private/exposed. . . So for this weeks print here is a linocut sketch of my window/curtain to the outside world in that moment.
