Monday Musings... Marlene Dumas

South African artist, Marlene Dumas, has recently opened a new exhibition, The Image as Burden, at the Tate Modern. I have been a big fan of her work since art school because I always admired her cropped portraits that focus attention on the face. I also read that she paints from secondary images (photographs etc) which I found quite rebellious when we were always told of the importance of painting from life. I'll hopefully get to the show in the coming months... let me know what you think if you manage to make it along!
