Save the TaTas! Really enjoyed making this collage. Love to make art with a message.
Who ya really sleepin’ with?
I just wanted a Marilyn moment ;)
Above are images I took of Veronica Canales for her AMAZING blog www.fiercelythriftin.com. The blog provides insight on how to thrift and how to dress fabulously while on a budget. I remember when she first started it; it’s amazing to see how far the blog has come. I really enjoy it and it has motivated me not only to thrift, but to be FIERCE in everything I do. I love this girl! She is hilarious and has an unforgettable personality. Make sure to check out her site!
When I was younger and had trouble sleeping, I would construct my own small movies in my mind, with my own cast of characters and adventurous plot. So much of me loves the fairytale, loves history and ultimately loves the Story. Every culture on this earth is rooted in story. Narratives, fictional and factual are shared ubiquitously and we revel in them sometimes unknowingly.
My art tends to center around the still life. A still world of my own that I breathe in.
It can be lonely. So here. I share it with you all, continuing a tradition of story telling.
The first is of my own dinner, where I am the main course. I reflection of sorts, where I eat myself.
The second, a reconstruction of The Death of Marat (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Death_of_Marat).
a little dose of black love.
I cant get away from the light, from the vibrance of life.
