Diana Michener - Dogs Fires Me & others

Diana Michener is a rather controversial artist (her picture of autopsy or of decapitaded animal heads were not totally well received). Born in 1940 in Boston, she has often chosen her subjects in domains usually dissimulated by common mortal men cos' too disturbing. But among her work, what I prefer is when she tries to catch how our bodies can express our inner torments. Either in writing on them (often her own) or in using blurred skins, she sometimes capture the eye and emotion trigger a shivering in my spine (don't know for yours). It's a selection of such pictures I did here above. I didn't really find a site on her (strange). If you know one, please help.
