Some of Martha Sedgwick's paintings make you just want to stick you fingers right into them and rip till you get through to the other side; or at least find out what is on the other side. And I mean that in a good way. She's been working with marks and gestures for a while now and it's definitely her train-of-thought. Please do spend a little time snooping around her Website and see where she's been visually - very interesting. I was pretty amazed by her Gull Pond Series from 2002 and 03 (in the Archives) and hope she revisits that style again . They make for quite a juxtaposition with the snap-crackle of this one.
