Francesca Woodman on Self Portraiture

I am taking a short digression from featuring some Chicago artists because there was very interesting article in the New York Times art section on Sunday on Francesca Woodman which featured her parents, both artists in their own right, and how they have gone about working with her archives. I had started a blog post on her last April but it somehow got squirreled away.

Woodman worked from a place of unconsciousness and total surrender. Her life was cut short at the tender age of 22 and some of her images fore shadow her untimely death...raw and riveting.
