Lee Malerich Revisited

Lee Malerich revisted. I just completed a new drawing from my old notes and sketches of Lee Malerich. It was a preparatory work for a painting that now goes with the poem “First Step.” The final version of the painting has the art work with the foot on it featured more prominently and Lee is looking straight out at the viewer. Here she is engaged in her embroidery. Once again, I’m improvising on the decoration and designs of the art work on the wall. The Latin phrase incorporated into the art, for instance, was not something originally in Lee’s embroidery work. It reads “Elevate the humble.” This is very much what Lee is now doing in her mature work - making exquisite art from recycled materials.
