So, Judy Chicago, artist, politics aside. That's is a very big aside for an artist who has worked on 'projects' that are virtually synonomous with politics her entire 60 year career. But there are many interesting things to know about this super energized, talented and courageous woman.
1. Her artistic 'projects' and therefore imagery include: Death (hers and species'), the Holocaust, Male Power, Birth, Feminism, Minimalism, Pyrotechnics.
2. She is 'outspokenly' passionate and direct about her 'projects.' For instance, here is one of her 'male power' paintings:
|Rainbow Pickett, 1965/2021, Matthews polyurethane paint on stainless steel|
5. She went to auto body school to learn welding and other techniques in the 1960's and was the only woman in the school. This is one of the car hoods she painted back then. Again, not taken seriously by the critics at the time. Teenage boy car lover Ciwt would have loved it even then!
|Birth Hood, 1965/2011, sprayed automotive lacquer on car hood|
6. She was also the only woman in her training when she received her certification in pyrotechnics.
|Birth Trinity: Needlepoint #1, 1983|
|Virginia Woolf, from Reincarnation Triptych, 1973, sprayed acrylic on canvas|
