she was an art star years ago, holding her own amongst the likes of whiny macho poseurs like Frank Stella and Jasper Johns, then when a big show met with critical whiff, withdrew to her country house, but kept working. Recently her massive retrospective was in three cities, and has been getting rave reviews, and now everyone sees how ahead of her time she was back when people were still drooling over Rauschenberg's clueless airballs. Another fine example of how the droves of critics can be counted on to miss the point (cough, Schnabel, Hirst, Salle, so many others); uh, yes, we should be more positive. Big ups to her for following her nose. Bravo!

haven't found many images online, but there's a juicy book to be had. glod I love this piece.
