2009 - Nancy Spero, feminist painter, died on Sunday, October 18th, in Manhattan
"I have deliberately attempted to distance my art from the Western emphasis on the subjective portrayal of individuality by using a hand-printing and collage technique utilizing zinc plates as an artist's tool instead of a brush or palette knife. Figures derived from various cultures co-exist in simultaneous time... The figures themselves could become hieroglyphs--extensions of a text denoting rites of passage, birth to old age, motion and gesture...Woman as activator or protagonist dancing in procession, elegiac or celebrator a continuous presence, engaged directly or glimpsed peripherally; the eye, as a moving camera, scans the re-imaging of women.". Statement by Nancy Spero entitled "The Continuous Presence, 1998."
