Radical Figuration and Jo Baer

Dusk, 2012, Jo Baer

Jo Baer is an American artist, born in 1929 in Seattle, WA.  Though beginning as a minimalist, her work evolved to be imbued with symbols, images, and words to become what she termed "radical figuration".  There's an excellent interview with her here.
Definitely an artist who marches to her own beat, I find her work effortlessly and endlessly engaging.
