sarah maple: the heir to tracy emin's throne?

I came across the impressive Sarah Maple over at bluemilk. Maple's work is fresh and challenging as she reinterprets and reflects upon herself as a woman who was raised as a muslim in the UK. What makes her especially interesting is the way she uses comedy. She displays a quirky and confrontational wit in her work that leaves you reconsidering boundaries, norms and opinions. Just what good art should do.


  1. Wonderful! I'm particularly impressed by the twists on the theme of Islam and women.

    Thank you for adding me to your blog list, btw. I'm enjoying your blog.

  2. Thanks Naomi, nice to hear from you.
