Is there a new Girly sensibility in Art?
Thats a tricky one, its not something I would really
like to pin down. I am really inspired by how it evolves, especially
in Karen Kilimnik, Elizabeth Peyton,& Sophie Von Hellermann
& I loved Matt Collishaws recent show at Modern Art. His
epic Magdalena got me on so many levels.
