There was a time when I was making panty-hose paintings and was really into shiny black things. (Ok, still into shiny black things). Then my friend Gus showed me Aime Dicke’s work and all I could think was that we shared so many of the same impulses but that hers were so much more sophisticated than mine. My favorite piece of hers has to be the armoire stuffed with fur tails.
Dicke’s work can be a little too sexy though. I wonder to what end her aesthetic decisions are working, besides my taking pleasure in them.
