Woman Made Gallery

My paper cut nude figures are featured in the Refreshing Feminism group exhibition at Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Illinois! The opening reception is Friday, 2/22 from 6pm until 8pm.   I am one of 39 artists and I’m excited to see how the other artworks collaborate in conversation with my piece. I hope to see you all there.

Notes from a Jerry Saltz lecture at SVA

Here are my notes from attending a talk by art critic Jerry Saltz during the painting and mixed media residency at SVA in New York this summer. This advice closely relates to artists!IMG_0920.JPG

  • Keep it simple stupid or K.I.S.S.
  • Make an enemy of Cynicism (I know why…)
  • Eyes are looking out not in
  • Make an enemy of envy (among your peers)
  • Work, work, work, work, work
  • We don’t have certainty, we have paradox in the art world
  • Stay up late with other vampires and protect each other (yes he actually said vampires)
  • Stop feeling sorry for yourself
  • Instragram is a “rebus”/ language in pictures
  • Pay attention to obsessions. There’s something inside of it
  • How big of a audience do you need and/or want?
  • All you need are 4 collectors, 1 dealer, 2 critics, and 1 curator to be a success
  • Commune with the ancestors!
  • Every decision you make is absolutely right
  • Artists are modern shaman
  • Artists are useless but we need you
  • Artists perform weird magic for cultures
  • We all have different Hamlet’s, we all are different villages
  • Disrupt icons with content
  • We live in a political age
  • Are your dreams giving you your entire career?
  • Use the value of art
  • Tell a story in your writing

Beauty Culture Project

Stopped by Blooming Normal Barber College (BNBC) this morning for the first run through of observational studies. This barber chair is beautiful! I was immediately attracted to the aged, intricate metal and large cushion. I’m looking forward to becoming more acquainted with this chair 🙂

Salon Propaganda

I found these images in Underground Barbershop and BNBC.
