    I know Kate, I actually really love that spider, but I think if you have any kind of creepy crawly phobia, you just swallowed your tongue. This staute is beautiful to my eye, but I’m not afraid of spiders. Thanks for telling us who the artist is!

      She just died a couple months ago. She was so, so interesting and strange. A real inspiration to me as an artist – very gutsy and totally ahead of her time. These spiders are so uncharacteristic (IMO) of her work as a whole – it’s interesting that these are what she’s most famous for.
