Lippard on L’ecriture feminine

Posted by rigorousm on July 8, 2015

“A uniform density, an overall texture, often sensuously tactile and often repetitive to the point of obsession; the preponderance of circular forms and central focus; often empty, often circular or oval, parabolic baglike forms… layered or strata; an indefinable looseness or flexibility of handling; a new fondness for pinks and pastels and the ephemeral cloud colours that used to be taboo.” Lippard 1976: 49. Quoted in An Intimate Distance: women, artists and the body, by Rosemary Betterton. Routledge 1996.
