Karen Ann Myers has some new paintings up on her website, which are absolutel amazing. I think I love everything about them. The patterns (as always) are incredible, the use of flat colour mixed up with shade. It's all wonderful.
I particularly love how unconfortable some of them make you feel, but you can't quite put your finger on why. It gives me the same sense of uncertainty as Edward Hopper's work does. Which is no bad thing at all.
I discovered her because of this painting (but I can't remember where I found it.) It actually inspired a song I wrote, which is probably the most pretentious thing ever but, meh. Just because I am THAT art school.
