more of my faves. seriously, we might be the same person.

a few christmases ago, i was fortunate enough to (with a bit of help from my aunt) scrape together enough cash to buy my ex a three-part print series of camille rose garcia's...limited, hand-numbered and hand-glittered. besides my darling cat, it was one of the things i was most bummed about being parted from after the break-up.

also: i will go on record saying that my favorite judith/holofernes painting is caravaggio's. gentileschi's Susanna and the Elders effing KILLS it though...it's the only version i've seen that doesn't put susanna "on display"...the men's gazes are clearly unwanted, something pretty revolutionary for artworks of the time.

oooh, why do i live in racine? i'm craving some art talks with you rightthissecond!

love you, chica.
xo, danger

p.s. next time i'd love to see some barbara kruger! and hannah hoch! and carolee schneemann!
