Comment from :


Two foamy figures - paradigmatic whispers of Athens and Rome yet resolutely modern (almost to the point of appearing alien) - float in a miasma of sea green. Their delineation ebbs in and out of registration: at times acuate; other times chalky, wispy, trailing off and evaporating in to the turquoise ground like a spider’s spun silk’s final sparkle in strangulated sunlight. Their #dialogue is quiet; pacific, yet their synergy is absolute, with both bodies dragging themselves out of their scratchy, painterly ground, only to then become beautifully entangled with one another; in one another; for one another. This is Nancy Spero’s ode to agency and meaning. It is her ballad to #love. No surprise, then, that the #painting is called “Lovers”. Executed in 1962, it now belongs to the #tate in #london. “Lovers” is referred to as one of #spero’s ‘Paris Black Paintings’. She and her husband, the #artist #leongolub, moved to #paris in 1959. They would live and work there for five years. Whilst there Spero experimented with various painterly techniques, arriving at a style and vocabulary for which “Lovers” is, in many ways, its zenith. Spero would firstly layer a skin of gold oil paint on to her canvas which she would then cover with black paint. Using turpentine, the artist would then erase, re-figure, scumble and smudge her surface, breaking open passages of black to reveal treasured gold beneath. Like the excavating archaeologist, Spero then discovered an ancient-looking surface on to which she delineated phantasmagoric figures inspired by #classical and #ancient #art, swimming in and out of denotation, verisimilitude and signification. Spero would become an important voice in #feminism and #feministart, however, here her figures betray no concrete gender. They are both androgyne and hermaphrodite; the womb of man. As such the love they display is both transgressive and transcendent, eclipsing all heteronormative prototypes of love as seen in myth, history, religion and literature. Spero’s lovers rise above all such mortal, earthly matters. Theirs, truly, is a love divine. Nancy Spero died #otd in 2009. She was 83. #mcwrip #femaleartist #womenartists
