Thursday Blart - Louise Nevelson - Abstract Expressionist Artist

Louise Nevelson - Abstract Expressionist Artist - September 23, 1899 – April 17, 1988 (Bio)
Recycling before it was chic. 
Nevelson is known for her abstract expressionist “crates” grouped together to form a new creation. She used found objects or everyday discarded things in her “assemblages” or assemblies, one of which was three stories high: "When you put together things that other people have thrown out, you’re really bringing them to life – a spiritual life that surpasses the life for which they were originally created."

I need the MONEY!

I don't demand that all work be a masterpiece. What I am doing is the right thing for me – that is what I am and this is living. It reflects me and I reflect it. ♦ Louise Nevelson ♦

A woman before her time.  I like her.  Eccentric, eclectic, outspoken, and colorful in her own way.  I want to be like her when I grow up. 

Support the arts.  More specifically local arts. 
Buy my work!  I need the money! 
Then again don't we all need the money? 
Have a great Thursday!  Thanks for visiting!
