i still haven't seen beautiful losers. it makes me tear up just a little, but i've tried & i can't find showings in seattle, the closest one looks to be in portland. hmmm, maybe i'll hop on the train. i have read a lot of reviews, seen the trailer & read up on many of the featured artists. this is where today's post falls in.
from gallery shows to graffiti art & murals under the tag name of meta or matokie slaughter, margaret kilgallen's work was strongly influenced by american folk art & hand painted signs. she often worked with gouache & acrylic on found paper; her palettes were warm & inviting.
based out of san francisco, kilgallen died in 2001 of complications from breast cancer at an early age of 33.
