Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight

A few weeks ago, I  posted about the Carmen Herrera documentary The 100 Years Show (2015). She is one of my favorite artists, and the short film is an inspiring look at the woman and her work.

As luck would have it, there’s an amazing Carmen Herrera exhibition running at the Wexner Center for the Arts. On Wednesday, my mom joined me for a tour of the show. Here are a few images from Carmen Herrera: Lines of Sight.

Her precision makes me giddy.

The exhibition runs through 16 April.

The Aesthetic Delights of Hilma af Klint

I’m having a particularly strong Hilma af Klint (1862-1944)  moment phase obsession. This extraordinary, trail-blazing Swedish woman is one of my favourite artists and inspirations. Although her strong mysticism is inextricably linked to her artwork, her paintings stand on their own as abstract marvels and aesthetic delights.
