I always love when an artist takes a turn well, and Andrea Champlin seems to be doing just that. I've been digging Champlin's paintings for a number of years, and had gotten used to her style. The other day though, I came across this new painting (above) on her blog. She's shifting and adding to what was already a pretty killah repertoire. It reminded me that she had posted another shift signifier (below) a couple months ago. What's next for Champlin? Who knows. I just enjoy being in the car while she's hugging the corners so gracefully without even thinking about careening into that ditch. Put the pedal down.
Old school . . . Snowgasm from her 2004 show at Michael Steinberg.
