Abstract painter and printmaker Mavis Pusey recently passed on.
Not only do I love her geometric shapes, but so much of her abstraction is inspired by the construction scenes in New York City, which I also spent so many years among, that I resonate with her subject matter, and feel a special affinity for her work.
Born in 1928, only three years younger than my mother, it is inspiring (even belatedly!) to see this excellent, female, black painter start to get some of the recognition she is so throughly deserves.
