Musings from a Yankee artist abroad in London...
Hi, I'm Romi. I'm an American artist who lives & works in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I have the amazing opportunity to live in London while working on a MFA program in fine art.
Zen Study 5
The Yankee artist starts the morning sipping tea and reading up on being a “Badass” and “how to stop doubting her greatness”. Red lipstick and a trip to the British Museum ensue, where she is moved by several prints and drawings shown from the Alexander Walker collection bequest: Edda Redouf’s Hidden Energy; Victor Pasmore’s spiral drawing, Untitled 1981; a Peter Doig etching, Blotter; and especially Brice Marden’s Zen Study 5. Upon returning home, she endeavors to faithfully start fulfilling her weekly horoscope’s charge to “borrow some of Diogenes’ attitude in the coming weeks” by experimenting “with being brassy, saucy and sassy”!
