Nothing in this world was more difficult than love.

Contemporary Art Week!

Tamara Natalie Madden

Madden lists among influences Gustav Klimt and images of Egyptian royalty. You can view many, many more images of her work here at her official website.

I find these breathtaking acrylic and mixed media paintings evocative of both the Fayum Mummy Portraits and early medieval icons featuring the Black Madonna.

This work is beautiful.

This video was shot and edited by Dean Peterson
Dean and I got in contact a few months ago. He liked the project, I liked his work, and so we made this video that documents the process behind creating STWTS posters. 

It’s important for me to show the process behind creating these pieces. Each portrait is an actual woman who has a story, who goes through this treatment daily, who has something to say about it that deserves to be heard. 

I initially decided to portray the women as drawings instead of photographs because it was my natural inclination as a portrait painter. But also, drawing someone’s portrait makes you really look at them. You have to recognize their humanity not just physically but personally. And I hope that’s what comes across when people see these portraits in the street. 

I’m rambling. Watch the video. 
Thanks to Zahira and Koku for talking so candidly with me.

Art and love are the same thing: It’s the process of seeing yourself in things that are not you.

Tatyana Fazlalizadeh | Stop Telling Women To Smile

During Tatyana’s week in Los Angeles, she displayed prints from the STWTS series in the store front window of El Nopal Press in Downtown LA. 

Watching the work in these windows gave us a chance to see in-person reactions. It was really interesting being inside the shop and seeing people through the windows stop to read the prints. 

Valecia Phillips from Feminist Magazine wanted to record the reactions that people on the street had to the work. You can listen to some of those reactions here, followed by an in-depth interview with Tatyana about the project as a whole.
