Lucy Mink

I was introduced to this painter's work over at the great new site called (standard) INTERVIEW which showcases artists at work using a simple interview template . I had to giggle at the tag line; 'attempting insight since 2010'.

Lucy Mink is a painter I can really relate to. She plays with form and colour and clearly revels in the process. Her paintings are vibrant and dynamic. I love it when I see a form that breathes life and these paintings certainly do that! In her interview I was struck by her list of influential artists in which she includes Australian painter Elizabeth Cummings, also one of my personal favourites. I like her artists statement too;

I am consumed by combinations of color and form as a visual, abstract diary of my life where time does not belong to me, but to others. I am frequently organizing their things while they dance. I am in a situation.

Painters' Table

Just when I thought I had exhausted my quest to find good painting sites on the web I stumbled on this site; Painters' Table. It describes itself as a magazine of the painting blogosphere and seems to have a wide variety of links to news, multimedia, books, interviews and more. Created recently by Brett Baker, this site has great potential and just might become a definitive guide to painting resources on the net. I look forward to reading more.
