Apologies. I've been a bad blogger. With all of the holiday travelling, long hours at work, and my desperate attempt at a social life, my recent blog updates have been infrequent and somewhat lacking. As has my nail care, but I digress. My recent frazzled state doesn't mean that I don't have a long list of post ideas to type up over the next few weeks. And since my list of recent obsessions includes a healthy number of visual artists (that I mostly read about on Vulture, as I'm not nearly cool enough for Art Forum), I thought I'd put together a little list of the art that has me salivating.
Note: I didn't even notice that all of these artists were women until I began typing up this post. Ladies doing it for themselves.
the creepy crawly work of Tessa Farmer
new pieces by the legendary Cindy Sherman
the sweet but slightly disturbing paintings of Melanie Vote
the delicate work of Jen Corace
the incredible detail of Ali Cavanaugh
