And cause I haven't done an "art that rocks the casbah" piece in a very very long time- here's Monika Grygier. She's a Polish artist who lives in Spain. Other than that, i don't know much about her, but her painting warm the dark little corners of my heart.
Sunday at 6:30 in the city
I love love love her paintings. I want to live in them even more than I want to live in a Morris Lewis painting. They are urban and organic and minimally luscious.
And speaking of luscious- I am also all a flutter for Pat Kagan. There is a perfect balance between fluidity and contrast in some of her works. She captures movement in a very pure way, making you feel every swirl and dip of the brush.
