Okay, sometimes I’ll be poking around for an hour or so, trying to find new people to spotlight, frustrated by broken links, closed websites, whatever else, and then BLAM! POW! I’ll find an artist and get that burst of adrenaline and feel so excited to share her with you all.
Here is Emily Kame Kngwarreye, an Aboriginal artist who died in 1996 and left behind so many amazing paintings, all made after she was 78 years old.
She quickly became a sort of art star, and despite rarely leaving her little space in the dessert, her work is all modern abstraction.
Are you as sucked in as I am to all the texture, the marks, the layers? These are a perfect example of abstraction exploding with energy.
