Marlene Dumas

"Measuring Your Own Grave"

Found Dumas in a book, "No.1: First Works by 362 Artists", and her work "Don't Talk to Strangers," from 1977, torn lines, fragments stacked along the outside edge of the paper, tape, yellowed paper, light stains... really enjoyed the physical texture of the text.
"...It was about art and life at the same time. I realized that for me art was like making love letters to strangers, whatever form it takes."
