Monday Mind: Four Excitements

Some reads, images, and shows I'm thinking about this week.

 

Helen Mirra's Terrapin (2007), which is pictured above, is a sculpture I come back to on repeat. Two cotton shirts. A granite rock. Casein paint. It's the image of mindful minimalism and groundedness that comes back to me during busy moments and meditation. I love this sculpture.

 

Excited about the Vija Celmins exhibition, which closes on April 22nd.

 

Egyptian Blue was the first synthetic pigment. More here.

 

I am always fascinated and horrified reading about hysteria, witches, and the "treatments" that were forced on women back in the day. Some new light on the classic story "The Yellow Wallpaper."
