FAVORITE ARTIST/WORKS OF ART, SLATE GRAY: 

Although I’m not usually focused on abstraction, I’m really fascinated by the work of Lisa Pressman. Her work seems to be the result of a disciplined process of introspection and experimentation. Like all great art, it’s not principally about aesthetics, and the end result is unknowable ahead of time.
