Painting Today International Women's Day

Tina Spratt

On Friday, March 8, coinciding with International Women's Day, the MEAM houses the opening of the exhibition 'Painting Today, International Women's Day' to claim the importance of women in the world of art and contemporary culture. The exhibition includes seventy works by more than forty women artists of diverse origins, coming from the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South America, and Central America. This is the second year in a row that the Museum organizes an exhibition to highlight the role of women in art, also coinciding with International Women's Day.

LITERATURE

Daniel Maidman on Teresa Elliott

This is a remarkably focused painting, its many elements all coordinated to produce a unified effect –

Clashing, vivid complimentary colors: orange-red and aquamarine.

An off-balance composition: all the elements are on the left, and yet every line is on a diagonal, sliding down and to the right.

A jumpy, violent background: the orange-red undercoat shows through incomplete coverage by the aquamarine paint. The visible brushmarks yield uncomfortable, high-contrast Clyfford Still shapes.

And above all, that upsetting figure. Her brow is furrowed, her eyes are just starting to tear, her pupils are dilated, her nostrils flare. She appears to be sweating, her cheeks are flushed, and her mouth hangs open. Her hands leap protectively to her neck. Each of us carries a thick encyclopedia of human expressions we can recognize. This one is very obscure but very specific. It is the particular fright linked to the question What almost happened to me just now? Continue reading.

Teresa Elliott, Brink, oil on linen, 20”x16”, 2019
