irma stern was a german artist who lived much of her life
in south africa. her art was termed, 'Art of Miss Irma Stern-
Ugliness as a cult.' But she held over one hundred solo exhibitions
in he lifetime. And she art broke records when sold at Southeby.
i admire her spirit to continue her passion and never give in
to what others say. this is a drawing after on of her paintings.
i may later add paint but quite like it as it is now.
a mixed media work in progress. slowly
i visited the hammer museum, one of the ucla galleries in
westwood, outside of the campus grounds. i am not sure
that clicking on the above image will enlarge the print.
i was not familiar with dubuffet before i visited the exhibit.
he was a french artist known as the father of the brut art movement
which later was called outsider art in the united states. he appreciated
the art of those who were not formerly trained in art yet displayed
talent in communicating through their art. here are a few of his
pieces on display. i was taken with his work and the impact he
had in the art world. if you are interested in learning more about
outsider art, here is a link
i have been under the weather these last few weeks
so have been less active. here is an accidental
posting today with friends at
paint party friday. my appreciation
to our hostesses kristen and eva.
