Beautiful Creatures in NELA

I have an installation on view at Social Study's store front display in Highland Park. It will be up until March 9th. Stop by and take a peek if you're in the area and stroll down York Blvd. Here are some photos from Saturday night's reception and art walk.

I have been working on an installation and a large wall sculpture (no pics to share for the sculpture yet).

Today's work is more about experimentation/trial and error. How to make the images come out of the wall.

Join us for the opening reception of systems + process in conjunction with Downtown LA's popular artwalk at Angel City Brewery in the Art District of DTLA.

Systems + Process is a group show of contemporary Los Angeles artists who examine the physical and tactile approaches to their work. Using various media and technique, these artists interact and explore the contemporary and cultural notion in the 21st century. We want to show the results from systematic, working/reworking through examinations that become parts of the process.

The show runs from October 7th thru November 3rd.

Monsters + Aliens

I’ve been working on a new series called Monsters + Aliens. The idea evolved from my previous work of integrating animals and obscuring images of women in my compositions. Weaving strings of materials, mostly from old paintings and some new into made up creatures, sculpted from wire frames come to play. I’m excited and looking forward to working on this new series--- when old work informs the new until it comes to fruition.

I always felt like an outsider growing up. In school, I felt like I never fit in. But it didn’t help when my mother, instead of buying me glue for school projects, would tell me to just use rice.
