Though el Guapo is the only artist I’m married to, he’s not the only artist I count as a friend, or whose work I enjoy. I’m planning a series that will feature work by various artists–some personal friends, some admired from afar, some just starting out, some well established. From time to time I’ll highlight paintings, photographs, illustrations, etc. that have something to say to me, because art can give us something we didn’t know we were missing.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to point me in the direction of artists whose work you think we all ought to see. Let’s explore together.
While you’re thinking of an artist to recommend, you can take a wander through a few studios, belonging to people even I had heard of. (All photos from an archive here.)
Something about those last two makes me really grateful that I’m not in charge of clean-up.
