Lesa Moriarity blogs about Hungry for Light, the journal of Abstract Expressionist painter Ethel Schwabacher.

Moriarity writes: "Hungry for Light is full of depth, Schwabacher writes about literature, painting, sculpture, forms. I don’t know if I could find another artist journal like it... to read her thinking through details of the Myths, of decisions made, situations, composition, facial gestures, is provoking and painful.
