Tracey Emin's "My Bed" is a finalist for Britain's coveted
Turner Prize for contemporary art. It is a double mattress
heaped with stained and disheveled sheets, surrounded by
the debris of indulgence -- discarded stockings, empty vodka
bottles, cigarette butts, etc. What is most interesting
about the Tony Harris picture of it that appeared in the
L.A. Times is not the work itself, but the 18 art critics
surrounding it all dressed completely in black.
Lee Krasner (1908 - 1984) is an Abstract Expressionist.
In 1945 she married Jackson Pollock (1912-1956). In 1953
Krasner began to deal with the extreme fustration she
felt about Pollock's alcoholism by ripping apart works
of hers and Pollock's and then combining these fragments
with oil paint to make a series of collages. The current
LACMA exhibit of Krasner's work shows these collages
as well as Prophecy. In 1956 Krasner left Prophecy on her
easel when she went to Europe as part of a trial separation
from Pollock. While she was abroad Pollock and one other
person were killed in a car crash. Pollock's mistress
Ruth Kligman was in the car but survived the crash.
Krasner completed Prophecy after this tragedy.
