My current artist to drool over is Anne Lindberg. I recently went to an artist talk at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art in Overland Park, KS. She was whitty, eloquent, and simply a joy to listen to. Her work is beautiful. Haunting.

At the Nerman, her piece was an installation of various yellow threads. So simple. Yet bright and brilliant. Glowing. And a little disorienting. I am going to sit in front of it one of these days. Just right there on the gallery floor.
