This week three art bloggers have featured my work on their blogs. On Pam Farrell's artblog
, my studio appears as the latest installment of her ISBP series. Pam has been showing photos of various studios along with artists' comments about connections between the physical environment in which they work and the work itself, and it's really fascinating to get a peek into the working spaces of others.
On Gwendolyn Plunkette's blog, Ancient Vessel
, my work is part of her Interactive Blogpost series about the elements of Rituals, Collections, and Time. She writes about my work: With (Rebecca's) process of selectively adding and scraping away, she makes paintings that at first glance, resemble aging and ancient walls. But the palimpsest-like surfaces of her work take us beyond "the wall" to another level of thought becoming parallel markers of the passage of time.
Finally, a newly-launched blog by Belgian artist Anne Dijon-Willame, Art et Vie
, features photos of several of my paintings, along with the work of other painters and photographers that Anne admires, and whom she feels brings our foccus on to the beauties of every day life. I very much appreciate Anne, Gwen and Pam's posting of my paintings, and I love the idea of this kind of virtual curating--finding work or ideas that focus on a certain theme, and bringing it together.
I am currently away from my home computer, but as soon as I return to it on Tuesday or Wednesday, I'll be posting photos of my recent exhibit at Grace Chosy Gallery in Madison. The opening was Friday night, and was a good time, with interesting people to meet and talk with, and some old friends in attendance. Time now for a few days away from thinking about studio work (though I found myself in a Dick Blick store today going a little crazy with the credit card!) Tomorrow, the Edvard Munch show at the Chicago Art Institute.
