Hello everyone! Please forgive me for the radio silence, the past month or so has been very hectic. As you may know, the Beardo and I are in the process of moving to another country and as you can imagine this new adventure is taking up all of our time.
HOWEVER, I am giving myself the night off tonight so I am going to plan some nice posts for you. While I am doing that, I thought we could chat like the good old days!
So please, send me any art related questions that you might have, it could be anything at all, or come and tell me your favourite artist, painting, artwork, sculpture etc. I missed talking to you guys!
We haven’t done this in a while, so send your art history related questions over to me if you have one. Or just come and tell me about your favourite artists, paintings, or an exhibition that you’ve seen. Anything really!
I am taking a break from editing one of my papers and could really use the chat.
*has had enough of researching and writing about art*
*takes a break by going on tumblr to look at some more art*

For those of you who are new to this blog, thank you for following! There are a bunch of features I have put together on my art blog you can find them all here under the Navigation tab on my page. Here I’ve tagged all the art by women artists and artists of color. I’ve also written some artist biographies, and art history lessons. My personal favorite the Lists page. Be sure to check them all out!
So here is the game:
In my inbox, send me the name of your favorite artist, and I will give you a contemporary artist recommendation!
I dig Berthe Morisot because her paintings make me feel like i can hear the voices of the subjects of the portraits
That’s a really interesting perspective on her work, Her subjects are rendered in a way that makes them seem like they have a story- they aren’t just objects in a painting. Thanks for sharing!
My fav artist is Barbara Kroll because I LOVE figure drawing and she has such a dark, gory perspective on rendering the human form. Her mark making is exciting and unpredictable and her color palette is unsettling and gives narrative to her drawings. Also this is a cool question, thanks for asking people & im a huge fan of this blog!!
Thanks so much for sharing! Oh wow her pieces are really haunting.
Nabataeans women had power enough to be rulers, if this kind of historic issue is in your interest area, take a look about them. They were the builders of Raqmu -in the west, Petra-.
That’s really interesting, I’ll have to check that out! Thanks!
Hello! Fellow art historian here. I've been really into the work of Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons here lately. She's Cuban born, afro Latina, and engages with her multiple identities. I'm moved by it. What women artists are moving you here lately?
Oh cool! Thanks for sharing, her work looks really compelling. So many actually. I’ve been drawn to illustrators lately, The compositions, the woman centric illustrations, and the vivid colors are really inspirational to me right now. I love Manjit Thapp, Anna Kövecses, Angela Mckay, Abbey Lossing, Daiana Ruiz, Kenesha Sneed- and so many more!
