Last night I had the huge honor of listening to Wangechi Mutu's talk at PNCA about her work. I was so impressed with the amount of clarity she had about her own body of work and it's context within a global view. She wove a mixture of history and art history in a beautiful nonlinear narrative that brought insight to her own various artistic phases. I was so impressed with her self awareness. She radiated confidence in a soft-spoken and humble manner. She is truly a beautiful and complex soul.
I can only hope to achieve that level of intelligence about the world around me and my works context int he greater scheme of things.
