#WomenWeLove—Chicago-based artist Celeste Rapone, whose large-scale works are a playful interplay of volumes and colors. “I think less about imperfect bodies specifically, and more generally about the imperfections that come along with being human – doubt, expectations and standards, commitment, boredom, shame – all conditions present in the process of painting as well.” #CelesteRapone #ArtSheSays @ Chicago, Illinois

We are loving the details from Tschabalala Self’s first major museum solo show ‘OUT OF BODY’ showcased at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston until June 2. The Harlem-born artist has been in huge demand since 2016, when art dealer Jeffrey Deitch included her in Art Basel Miami, almost right after her graduation from Yale. Already, she is included in some of the major collections around the world, such as the Rubell Museum.
.
Skillfully working with fabrics and textiles, the artist sews together fragments of fleshy and psychological situations, often exaggerating some physical characteristics of the black female body, revealing some subconscious myths and expectations surrounding the black female form.
.
Self’s current market is definitely high 📈 Her record price was set last June 2019 at auction, when one of her works from ’OUT OF BODY’ sold for $382,000 – five times its highest estimate! #TschabalalaSelf #ArtSheSays

#WomenWeLove—Sofia Mitsola, an English artist who primarily investigates the female form in her paintings. Her invented characters are informed by ancient Greek and Egyptian sculptures, usually depictions of goddesses or mythical creatures. These, are set in simple geometric backgrounds with intensely bright and almost flat colours and are depicted naked and larger than human scale. Through them, she is playing with ideas about voyeurism, confrontation, and power. #SofiaMitsola #ArtSheSays @ London, United Kingdom

#WomanCrushWednesday—British painter Faye Wei Wei, whose bold, poetic works quiver with a lively, lyrical motion, combining classical poise with vibrant immediacy. Working on a large scale, Wei Wei conceives of the painting process as an intimate choreography between actual and pictorial space. Often revolving around spiritual iconography and classical myth, love rituals and the theatricality of gender, her works sometimes suggest the themes of particular mythic narratives, and at other moments seem to depart into a more ambiguous, interior space of incongruity and uncertainty. #FeiWeiWei #ArtSheSays

#FemmeFatale Friday—In addition to Kristin Simmons’ upcoming show at Phillips Art Auctions, the artist has been featured in numerous group exhibitions, including at the 2016 Whitney Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York. She is currently an Artist in Residence with the United Nations. Influenced by her own narrative of experiences in the real life “Mad Men” atmosphere of her first jobs in advertising, “Women Of Change,” is four commissioned pieces focusing on the gender wage gap, portraying an accurate but unfortunate reality where women in the 21st century continue to face significant pay inequality.
.
Whether it’s cigarette ads, credit card consumerism, Disney princesses on Xanax, or makeup and glitter on the American dollar bills’ founding fathers to criticize the absence of female faces on US currency, Simmons believes art can inspire provocative and uncomfortable topics, including meaningful conversation about what defines and confines the female experience in the 21st century. She not only hopes to give a voice to female artists, but also to inspire conversation about how we can eradicate harmful gender stereotypes through both action and reaction. #KristinSimmons #ArtSheSays

THE POP ART COLLECTION—Shoes have a transformative power, almost like drugs! 👠💞💊 Shop the new collection by artist of the month, Kristin Simmons, whose concept is deeply embedded in the idea of criticizing consumption inseparable from the American culture.
.
Whether it’s mental health, pop culture, politics, or capitalism, the New York-based pop artist doesn’t shy away from the polemical. Her work juxtaposes colorful, graphic compositions which often contain childhood artifacts, glitter, and neon—with more sinister, sybaritic messages.
.
Toy doll shoes are mass produced in China and India, like many generic drugs that often have overlooked negative effects. In this collection, Simmons includes her own Barbie shoes from childhood, and pill bottles which she sprayed and repainted. #KristinSimmons #ArtSheSays

THE POP ART COLLECTION—Crazy, mental, psychopath – which one are you? 💊 Shop the new collection featuring artist of the month, Kristin Simmons, a New York-based pop artist with an advertising background whose concept is deeply embedded in the idea of criticizing consumption inseparable from the American culture. Taking cues from the power of visual and verbal combinations, “Bad Habits” is a series of pastel hand-pulled screenprints combining the mutated language with its most obvious historical expression, the branding of the top six selling global cigarette labels.
.
“It is no surprise that we are manipulated, both visually and socially, as an ongoing condition in our culture. Younger generations have long taken language traditionally used to describe the bad or abnormal and changed it into something good. In this same vein of calling something “crazy” or “mental” to express awe, cigarette brands have a long tradition of turning the bad or what should be labeled as “buyer beware” to good in advertising.” #KristinSimmons #ArtSheSays

THE POP ART COLLECTION—We’re all suckers for pain 💉 Shop the new collection featuring artist of the month, Kristin Simmons, a New York-based pop artist with an advertising background who focuses on hedonistic pleasures, in particular, the absolute pleasure of consumption! The ultimate combination of Barbara Kruger, Andy Warhol, and Roy Lichtenstein, the artist uses paint, printmaking, and mixed media to provide a running commentary on herself and her contemporaries.
.
“We act as if consumption and the accumulation of stuff is often viewed as the path to happiness. We are programmed to expect a post-pain “reward” the minute we walk out of the doctor’s office as toddlers with lollipops. Addictive consumption (whether food, things, drugs, experiences both chemical and emotional) is the consequence of values fostered for thirty-five years – especially for the “everyone get’s a trophy” generation. It can turn people into narcissistic, self-absorbed, solitary hyper-consumers.”
.
Simmons explores a syringe’s transformation from an instrument of medical practice to a simultaneously political and commercial object, idolized and idealized in our culture’s desire to escape the mundane and experience life through euphoria – whether it’s from Instagram filters, our latest big-ticket purchase, or that quick-hit of sugar or opiate medications that are becoming increasingly prevalent in today’s culture. Do they represent life and freedom, or death, addiction and destruction? #KristinSimmons #ArtSheSays
