August is turning out to be a wonderful month. I am pleased to share this interview by artist and writer Philip Hartigan for his blog. You may have seen his interview with another Philadelphian Tim McFarlane. Nice company.

from Philip Hartigan:
Stella Untalan. Reasons for liking: pattern, repetition, variation within a chosen vocabulary of marks, apparently using the harmonious balance of the grid, but note the hand-drawn nature of the marks, how they are evidently drawn by a hand and subject to the natural alteration of one shape to the next produced by the fine vibrations of human sinew rather than the fixed movements of the machine.
