women artists

ART:21 is an excellent home video that I have been watching while quilting in my hoop this weekend. It was wonderful to be able to watch the wide variety of artists in their studios and numerous other places. It was informative to hear what they had to say about their work and what it was like to do it. To live it. I loved Richard Serra's reminder that the eye is a muscle that needs to be exercised, and that is why he draws every day. It was so poignant to hear James Turrell say how much his work cost him to make. Two marriages. However, my favourites were the women. Ann Hamilton, Louise Bourgeois, Kiki Smith, and Sally Mann. 5 stars.
