I know our masthead rotation hasn’t been as timely as we’d promised, but until we have a script written to automate the process of changing it some irregularity will continue. Apologies in advance.

In the meantime, this week in our masthead we feature the painting Interlock by Danielle Mysliwiec. Building upon the tradition of artists such as Annie Albers, Sheila Hicks, and Lenore Tawney, Mysliwiec creates a luscious surface with woven paint. Her paintings have a demanding presence, creating a great illusion of depth, while also imparting the same sense of transformation and strength fabric itself takes on once constructed.

She complete her undergraduate studies at Wesleyan University and moved to New York in 1998, where she then received her MFA degree from Hunter College. In addition to painting, Mysliwiec is a co-founder of Brainstormers, a feminist performance group. In her current series of oil paintings she constructs highly textured surfaces that create the illusion of woven structures and unraveling moments.
