Listen to an interview with Martha MacLeish.

Martha’s work is strangely, elusively suggestive. What is it making me think of? Seriously, I’m asking. Arp? O’Keefe?
Yeah, Tom Gregg, Mark Lewis, Martha MacLeish…it’s been the week of suggestive, elusive can’t quite nail down the story going on week of paintings from 40something Yalees.
Seriously, I don’t know…Arp, O’Keefe, clouds, tongues, Raymond Loewy?
It’s not unthinkable. Look at that guy’s hair!
PS, just went to see Martha Armstrong give a talk at TU today. I may post a link to that show next…she’s definitely an east coaster but she taught at IU for a bit.
Yeah, I think shows happening in the midwest count. The Kemper Museum in Kansas City is about to open a show of East German painters. I am definitely figuring on linking to that.
PS Melanie tells me that Martha bases the forms off of drawings, at least some of which she made in Italy from landscape and cityscape motifs a few years ago.
It’s great to see her work after twenty years! “Strangely, elusively suggestive”? No. Consubstantially, i.e. concretely affirmative — her ongoing work.
