Collage by Vivienne Strauss
I hate talking about art, it tends to get pretty pretentious awfully quickly. Mr. Man always elbows me when I tell an artist "I like your stuff". I try to keep it simple, like me. I recently told the wonderfully gifted artist, Vivienne Strauss that her work reminded me of Ray Johnson and Renee Magritte. I actually said that if Mr. Johnson and Mr. Magritte had a baby it would be her. Thankfully she took this as the compliment it was intended to be.
Artist, Lee Godie
I also have this highest of compliments to say about her wonderful paintings, I can imagine them hanging in the apartment of the late Kitty Carlisle Hart. Kitty's 5th Avenue penthouse would have been brimming with Vivienne's work!
Vivienne's blog and many Etsy shops. Perhaps I haven't articulated it very well, but I love her stuff!
