Wangechi Mutu

There was an article in the NY Times today about the Performa art festival and I noticed a stunning image credited to an artist I hadn't heard about before: Wangechi Mutu. The Saatchi Gallery has a great selection of her work on view in a hi-res online gallery. Take Futurist-style collage work, post-colonial critique and a liberal dash of glitter and fur and stick it on some medical illustration paper filled with uterine tumors et voila! An art-world darling is surely born!
