The inspirational finesse of these two female artists’ work spans continents and histories, expressing their love of the natural objects of choice to paint, through texture, intensity and a stylishly limited palette of depth and tone, over quantity of colours.

The techniques both artists employ are complicated and thoughtful, resulting in the type…

Woody’s Children is what Pete Seeger called the wave of early 1960’s Greenwich Village pilgrims (Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Peter Lafarge, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot, Joan Baez, Tom Paxton). A decade later, legendary Broadside Magazine co-founder, Sis Cunningham, sat in her upper west side New York apartment with Pete…
