Niki de Saint Phalle
apparently there was a retrospective of her work at the Tate last fall. is it still there? did anyone see it?

I think her shooting paintings are pretty cool. not as much the finished painting as the spectacular performance aspect.

some videos. annoyingly overdubbed in german.

haha awesome, that's like the reverse. she's acting against male oppression (or whatever, this was the 60s), the make-up gun in homer's hands is like the opposite, it's aim isn't destruction but beautification.

yea sorry, I meant that more like, "haha, that's cool", but now that I've looked at it again it reads more like "haha, silly you".

now edited for clarity.

No, not at all, I was being a dickhead. I just hope I haven't ruined your art thread, mage. Sorry bro. Just being a dickhead for lulz that's all.
