What contemporary painters do you admire? Why?

This is one of the questions we are asked to answer for our Painting II Outline class assignment. Over the semesters I’ve added to my list as I learn about new (to me) contemporary artists. At my teacher’s suggestion I‘ve added Shinique Smith. She creates highly expressive paintings combining paint, collage and assemblage. She is a great inspiration to break the picture plane and go all out with color and ideas. I’m excited to explore this method with my newest piece “recovery is a journey not a destination”. Lets’s see where this takes me!
