While I've been waiting for my muse to return and for this horrible heat and humidity to diminish, I've been having fun checking out different sites and various links on sites. I've found several artists that really intrigue me and am slowly feeling that creative spark returning.
Elizabeth McGrath is an artist that is new to me. I am fascinated by her inventive and creative pieces.
A short excerpt from her website bio:
Los Angeles-born artist Elizabeth McGrath has always had an eye for the strange beauty in the grotesqueries of life; this appreciation is nowhere more evident than in her work. Inspired by the relationship between the natural world and the detritus of consumer culture, she brings forth a new cavalcade of creatures from the darker corners of the streets, the city, the imagination. It is this melancholy interaction between man-made status symbols and suffering specimens of nature that make up her intricate body of work. Today she lives in Downtown LA with her hairless dogs Blue and King Tut, and her Husband Morgan Slade. They play together in the band Miss Derringer.
