Oh, to fly to Milwaukee on a magic broomstick to see those new 17 paintings in the flesh ! I hadn't heard of Gina Litherland until today-her works are so strange and luminous, putting me in mind above all of my beloved Remedios Varo. Not just in their manner of painting but also in their exploration of women and beasts and, of course, their fascination with dream.

You know I thought immediately of Remedios Varo when I saw her work too! And yet some of the pieces (especially with their beautiful antique frames) look straight out of the 15th century. They really are wonderful. And she was a lovely woman too--very articulate and funny when she gave a talk about her work.

Litherland's work is stunning. Wow. Wish I was there to see it in the flesh.
