Reading my Spring 2012 issue of TATE ETC, and there some great writing about Charline von Heyl. I think she is so rad! I just am so excited by her work, she is risky and surprising. Jacqueline Humphries writes an inspiring piece on her, and there was part of it that I just love. She writes: I've always felt with her a sense of common purpose, ambition and predicament: that painting should engage an urgent sense of responsibility to life in this moment, yet with no roadmap for how to even begin, there is a void which begs the question: what is real? What can be made vivid? What is the cost of launching oneself into this act against all odds of making it new and vital?
I love that, because I think about those questions all the time.
