The Sabah House Rules

It was nearly a year ago that I discovered the Sabah Dealer.

A chance meeting on Twitter led me to this exotic, almost whimsical Instagram where I was transported to Anatolia. To the bazaars, the buskers and baksheesh and medieval villages. To a world still crafted by hand.

I soon found that behind the Sabah Dealer’s travels were shoes–Sabah’s themselves–hand stitched slippers crafted from…

Feminist Art Friday Feature: Lee Krasner

Abstract Expressionist Lee Krasner is best known for her beautiful and deeply powerful collages and  gestural works. You’ve probably heard of her famous husband, Jackson Pollock, but did you know his wife was another powerful and influential force in the AbEx movement? 

Born in Brooklyn, NY, Krasner began studying art at a young age studying at The Cooper Union at the National Academy for Design. She went on to work for the WPA Federal Art Project before going on to study under Hans Hoffman, another famous abstract expressionist. At a time when the work of women was severely under-valued, Krasner’s presence in the art scene was unique but her career was nonetheless often overshadowed by her husband’s. 

Since her death in 1987, Krasner remains one of the most important artists to have emerged from the New York School and a pioneering force in the Abstract Expressionist movement. As such, she is one of only a handful of women artists to have ever had a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
