group show: the back

Once upon a time, I had cable accidentally. This accident provided me with my introduction to the PBS programme Sister Wendy. All these many years later, I remember this tiny nun describing a nude torso with such passion. The way she said “the baaack” which such strong emphasis that it made my roomates and I hysterical for weeks. I can’t see back torsos in art without hearing her voice saying “the baaaack”. This group show is dedicated to Sister Wendy. Thanks for the giggles.

Editor’s note: I know. I know. I only featured paintings of women’s backs. But there were just so darn many gorgeous works of lady backs. Just so its all fair, at some point I will look at lovely man backs.

Treat yourself to a cup of tea and You Tube some Sister Wendy
