A thought to start the new year with a little wisdom from the guerrilla girls.
#WorkOfTheWeek: Guerrilla Girls, 'Dearest Art Collector' 1986, Tate collection The Guerrilla Girls are a group of anonymous American female artists who dub themselves the ‘conscience of the art world’. Since forming in 1984 the Guerrilla Girls have been working to expose sexual and racial discrimination in the cultural sphere. In this portfolio of posters they appropriated the visual language of advertising, specifically fly-posting, pasting these up in the middle of the night. The group’s members protect their identities by wearing gorilla masks in public and by assuming pseudonyms taken from deceased female figures such as the writer Gertrude Stein and Frida Kahlo. #GuerrillaGirls
I’ve been in the process of getting ready for the next level. Having worked for three years on my new portfolio several pieces are online for sale. I am also going through my inventory of landscapes, floral and seascape works and adding select pieces. 2017 will be the year of new horizons and new challenges but I’m ready, more details to come.
