my viewing “wish list”
Wow! Is it really Monday already? Here is my weekly “wish list.” Enjoy!
1. Amanda Ross-Ho: I don’t know what it is, but recently I am much more interested with what is NOT there then what is. It looks like Ross-Ho’s website is coming soon, but be sure to check out more of her work here.
“Negative Carrier #5 (Sensitizers)”
Canvas drop cloth, canvas remnants, aluminum thumbtacks, acrylic paint,
vintage goldtone brooches, graphite, gold plated necklace, ballpoint pen
2. Amy Sillman: I LOVE the colors and angles in Sillman’s work, especially this painting. I’m always a sucker for blue. Actually, this piece would look mighty fine on my wall! Make sure to check out more of her work here.
Oil on canvas
3. Edgar Degas: I know, I know, this seems like it is coming out of nowhere what with all of the other work I have posted thus far being pretty contemporary, but I am in the middle of reading The Delirious Museum, again, which brought my attention to this etching by Degas. I want to take part in the act of “looking.”
“Mary Cassatt at the Louvre: The Etruscan Gallery”
Softground etching, drypoint, aquatint, and etching, third state of nine
Well, that’s it for today! Have you seen any of the work above in person? What did you think?
my viewing “wish list” is a weekly post where I share artists’ work I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see in person! Staring at a computer screen is just not the same.
