KARIN MILLER

South African Artist, Karin Miller’s work is thought provoking with an eclectic sense of cultural study.

In Miller’s own words her work is “a visual play between beauty and tragedy, rhythm and interruption – searching for a sense of order in the overwhelming chaos of life. Two main metaphors I use are those of disguise and pattern. Apart from the obvious masks, I play games of hide and seek with the viewer. Issues are veiled; in the discovery of detail, deceit is revealed and absurdly inverted.”

eumen:

Judith, by Artemesia Gentileschi, a Roman painter in the early 1620s. Gentileschi was raped and actually prosecuted her rapist in court, and the trial went on for like seven months and she was verbally abused and harassed, she underwent a physical exam to prove her virginity, she was physically tortured to see if she was telling the truth, and her rapist was actually found guilty! But he was only sentenced to a few months of exile. Shortly after the trial, the church said she couldn’t paint the Virgin Mary or any other religious depictions because they couldnt have someone who was raped painting things for the church. She then began painting things like this and in every painting she put the face of her rapist as the man being killed.

Mark Jenkins - City (2012)

“Sculptor Mark Jenkins’s City series is comprised of hilariously twisted, disconcertingly lifelike sculptures placed in public spaces in odd postures, often in seeming distress or danger, usually with a broadly humorous undertone, much to the bafflement of the general public.”

Artemisia Gentileschi - badass Baroque artist and student of Caravaggio - is most famous for this painting (Judith Slaying Holofernes). Although the scene is a dramatic Biblical story, and therefore often painted, Gentileschi’s is particularly powerful because she painted herself as Judith, and painted her former mentor and rapist, Agostino Tassi, as Holofernes. 
Oh, plus Artemisia Gentileschi is the earliest known working female Artist (in Western art).
Basically I love her.
