My favourite female artists: Part 2

My first blog focused on American contemporary female painters.  Some of these artists I admire, or just like but I don’t think they necessarily influence my work in the way that the American painters in my first list do. Again most of them are not especially famous but I thought I’d share their names and examples of their work. Apologies for the randomness of this list, its sort of in the order in which I thought of them.

Elizabeth Geiger, another American artist. I absolutely love her treatment of light in her work, with interior and exterior scenes.

 

Este Macleod, does a lot of designs involving plants and birds but its her still life work that I particularly enjoy for her bold use of colour. They have such presence.

Jo March, does delightful colourful landscapes.

Shani Rhys James  Her work is impressive, often very large-scale and has a powerful presence.

Zoey Frank 

is one of those artists who makes it look easy. You know it’s not easy it’s just that she’s very, very darn good.

Viv Owen is an excellent figurative/portrait artist whose work I have come across on http://www.Artfinder.com.

 

Finally, one more American, Hope Glangloff whose distinctively colourful portraits remind me of both the work of Lautrec and Schiele.

I’ll probably think of another 10 artists as soon as I post this. If you have any other suggestions for living female artists I love to hear about them.

  1. Love this series, Emma, they made me discover artist I didn’t know. I have recently discovered the work of Nigerian Toyin Odutola – she had a solo show at the Whitney, an de I think she’s an interesting artist.

  2. Thank you for your suggestion – I think I’ll do a third blog based on the artists suggested by you and other commentators. Happy New Year to you.
