Women Artists to See in the UK

There's always lots of art to see, but lately I've added lots of women artists to my wishlist to see! So I thought I'd highlight these women; some well known and thought about for years, others unknown and waiting to be discovered.

Georgina Houghton: Spirit Drawings at the Courtauld Gallery, London 
--Free, abstract, colourful, automatic, spirit watercolours by this Spiritualist Medium painting in the mid-late 19th Century.


Mona Hatoum at Tate Modern, London
--Contradictions, energy and emotion pulsate through simple conceptual juxapositions.

Georgia O'Keefe at Tate Modern, London
--Big Stunning Flowers Y-E-S, but also New Mexico landscapes and skulls.

Ella Kruglyanskaya at Tate Liverpool
---Portraits, conversations, relationships, everyday life...

Maria Lassnig at Tate Liverpool
--Gestural, evocative surreal figurative work

Rachel Whiteread at Tate Britain, London
---Plaster, rubber, resin sculpture casts of negative space of the everyday.
