ARTISTS I LIKE: SAM TAYLOR WOOD

Selections from the series "Escape Artist" (2008)

Sam Taylor Wood is a British artist known for her video work and still photography.  She often addresses the confluence between death, sadness and celebrity.  She is well known for her photo series of famous male actors letting the water works loose: "Crying Men".  She recently completed her first debut feature film "Nowhere Boy" about the early life of John Lennon.  I just saw it and its pretty fantastic.  

Here are some adult men you might know weeping:

  1. I was fortunate enough to see Pieta' as part of an exhibition of her work, and it's really quite an amazing piece. I am looking forward to see what she has come up with in this new movie.
