Ellen Gallagher at the Tate Modern

(Community Matters) Ellen Gallagher – born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1965 and now living & working in Rotterdam and New York –   evidently one of our most acclaimed modern artists, is of biracial ethnicity; her father’s heritage was from Cape Verde, in Western Africa (but he was born in the United States), and her mother’s background was Caucasian Irish Catholic. I didn’t know her work until this weekend but love her range of mediums and imagery.
