” On January 19, 1981, Woodman died by suicide, jumping out of a loft window of a building on the East side of New York.An acquaintance wrote, “things had been bad, there had been therapy, things had gotten better, guard had been let down”. Her father has suggested that Woodman’s suicide was related to an unsuccessful application for funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. “

 

She had it all. Boyfriend, beauty, studio, fine education, career..she had it all. Dies at the age of 23… THEN she becames famous. Countless times we’ve read abt this in the art world. She wasn’t even mentioned in the fine art books prior to that!

Fantastic exhibition though !!! Why? Because of her experimenting of soft and hard flows, structure, light and vertical and horisontal directions, magnetism, of being one with nature, being torn, being a dirty angel in dirt, how she worked with different photo techniques in her photographing, with different frameworks for that, how she revealed herself between her lines like no other arist I have seen before – it was a very very naked exhibition, and then I don’t mean the bodies. The earthly pain , death and afterlife is present in almost every photo..made it erier as we now know she killed herself, so I guess she must have been experimenting with her thoughts on that as well.

End of mope.
