Thank you for this post. I love the work of Nicki Saint Phalle, but knew nothing of her story. As a tarot consultant, I have always wanted to visit the tarot garden, as an artist I appreciate greatly the enormity of her endeavors. I saw a white sculptural figurative piece of hers at one of the museums in Paris and not knowing it was hers it completely stopped me in her tracks.

Hi Katherine!

You are welcome! I would also love to see that tarot garden! You are a tarot consultant - does that mean you read cards?


Katherine said...

Yes I do. I have been doing it forever, used to teach. I do them from a transformational/spiritual point of view. No fortune telling for me, people have a difficult enough staying present for their lives. It sneaks in every great once in a while. If you want to know more check out my other blog Thank you again for Nicki St. Phalle

Thanks for some art ed, Martha. I wasn't familiar with Niki St. Phalle, so I was fascinated with her story and watched almost all the clips about her. What spectacular sculpture! And her kitchen, wow...who would ever think of that? Bring on the Windex.
