Helen Frankenthaler and the magic carpet

When I was at art school one of my hero's was Helen Frankenthaler, American abstract expressionist, and later married to Robert Motherwell.
Not only was she one of the few women working in this genre who was as renowned as some of her male colleagues at that time, but her works have a luminosity and vulnerability I've rarely seen elsewhere.

Whenever I've seen some of these huge paintings, my heart has skipped a beat, as I breathe in the courage and power in front of me.

I am so grateful for her work, she continues to inspire me and nourish my apetite for new frontiers of colour usage and expression.
