Memories

Musings and such

Last week Friday, I had a bright idea to visit Blick for some art supplies. Every time I do this, I end up spending money that I don't really have. Anyway, I picked up a few things: 1 12x12in board, paper, brush case, new pencils, etc. When I got home, I had every intention of creating something new. What happened instead, was better.

As I was looking at my new found materials (oh! The pretty paper!) I realized that I can do something better than create a random piece of art. I can create mini collages of scenes from memory! I am beyond excited to start sketching out details and the blueprints. Its been awhile since I've had this kind of instant inspiration. Another thing to note is that this idea falls perfectly in line with what Ive been writing in my artist statement. Believe it or not, those statements are REALLY hard to make. To narrow what you do to a single page is incredibly hard when you have an interest in practically everything. 

So wish me luck world, Im going after this idea as if it were my last one ever!

New Kickstarter project!

I have decided to start a kickstarter project for my 4Blocks: Disintegrated series. Details below :)

"Creating a performance piece in which I record the burning of photographs of my childhood neighborhood"

4Blocks: Disintegrated is an extension of my 4Blocks: Welcome to the Garden series. This extension focuses on the symbolic "burning" of my memory in the form of photographs. These photographs are in no way retouched or glorified- they are basic snapshots of my childhood neighborhood. Each glimpse of brick, sidewalk, hallway and other form of scenery shown has formed a deep connection with my memories of past events from my childhood. Consider this my own formal goodbye to the past, and a welcoming of my future.

Heres the link!
