Sleeping under Statues

Holly Harmon's art blog - sharing artwork and artists that move me.

Title taken from a joke by stand-up comedian Jesse Joyce, which refers to the fact that I'm doing what I love: Art History. As a result I may soon be "sleeping under statues in the park, but I'll know who made them, and that's important."
Ask me anything

Alma Thomas. White Roses Sing and Sing. 1976.

I love Alma Thomas since I discovered her last fall at NMWA. She has a brilliant sense of color and her seems to really vibrate with energy. What I love about this piece is that most of the “content” seems to be buried underneath the surface of the painting. I really enjoy the way that she plays with foreground and background through these abstract forms. It’s a really interesting painting.
