Those close to me know of my love for Paula Rego, the reason for this love is simple, Paula Rego is the most important female artist of the last 100 years, not only is she the most important, her work has never been more important than it is today. The issues Paula has faced in her long spanning career, most famous being her fight against fascism and Abortion bans are imminent issues we are faced with head on again today. Until now Paula, like many deserving female artists has criminally not been as known as she should be yet when faced with these same social issues again I refuse to not take Paula Regos name and work along for the fight. It finally feels like Paula Rego is getting the recognition she deserves as an artist, but also as an activist who has fought for the rights and freedoms that millions of us hold all over the world. Paula Rego is more than a favourite artist of mine, she is a hero of mine... and I’ve not even touched upon the physical beauty of her work. This video is from her current show at @mk_gallery showing now.
