Laurie Hogin (born 1963) is an American artist, known for allegorical paintings of mutant animals and plants that rework the tropes and exacting styles of Neoclassical art in order to critique, parody or call attention to contemporary and historical mythologies, systems of power, and human experience and variety.
it makes me CRAZY that so many of mitski’s songs are fictionalized (two slow dancers, washing machine heart, me and my husband to name a few obvious ones) or at alagorical (pearl diver, crack baby, i bet on losing dogs), and a lot of the sincere autobiographical ones are about music and making art (geyser, i think you could read francis forever or goodbye my danish sweetheart that way but maybe i’m projecting, and i saw a reading of me and my husband with the husband as her music that was really cool i wish i could find it lmk if you know what i’m talking abt).
anyway can you believe all that is a single sentence? i sure can’t!
