Sewing Circle Part 3 this Sunday

I printed my Woman Woman Selfie onto heavy fabric for a 10’x8′ tapestry.

Im on deadline for a show and need help sewing bottle caps, buttons and beads onto the fabric for the hair. I need help sewing on bling.

I’ll be at Garden Level Gallery from 11:00am-4:00pm Sunday 7/29. Come for 30mins or come for the duration. Bring a friend or just yourself.

RSVP

Yes, I will have snacks and day drinking beverages on hand… 🙂

If you can’t sew, don’t worry, this You Tube video will teach you the basics.

Ever been advised to keep your “big mouth shut” and remain silent? Or to be mindful how “big In The Room” you are?
Well, I say to hell with that. Say what needs to be said. Do you…

 

Installation of Infinite Possibilities

Im redoing the art in the lobby of A Condo in downtown Jersey City for the month of June. 

The opening reception will be Friday, June 8th, 7:00pm-9:00pm. Please come see…

LOCATION: 389 Washington St, Jersey City, NJ 07302

The show, Infinite Possibilities is the personification of my artist statement, for real for real.

WE all wear masks. Masks to pretend, to hide, to celebrate or just to put our best face forward in a selfie.

I construct masks for protection. What may start off as an ugly statement, in the end, becomes something beautiful.

I transform drawings, photographs, along with found and meticulously collected materials into self-portraits.

I photograph my process and then digitally manipulate these images to extend the narrative as part of my personal mythology.

Fragmented identity juxtaposed with the existence of infinite possibilities is a recurring theme in my work.

The show consists of four early mixed media works 24″x12″ , two large aluminum prints 40″x30″, Headache and ZYX, one 30″x30″ mixed media portrait, three underworld goddesses 20″x20″ and three Gossip girl masks 20″x20″. Im also draping two 20’x10′ fabric panels of my print “Tag 8” from the ceiling to floor in the seating area.

I LOVE Wonder Woman. I grew up watching the Linda Carter’s Wonder Woman and wanted to be a bad ass too. After seeing Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman in Theaters, I knew I had to pattern my next Super Selfie after Wonder Woman
