I’ve continued with my exploration into the theme of Water; and despite beginning with a limited palette I intuitively found myself reaching for the brights which seemed the right way to show joy, exuberance and freedom for me - I noticed I was thinking about how it feels to swim in the sea, to feel the rush of a wave against your skin, and the euphoria of being alive and at one with nature.
I’ve just gessoed two more panels as I can sense another piece of work emerging; I’m loving this adventure into colour and abstract, following the feeling and allowing the body to paint, rather than the mind.

-,, იქაური სიჩუმე, გარინდულობა და იშვიათი მოძრაობა ალბათ ეხმარება იმასაც, რომ ამ მხარეში ადამიანი ბევრს ფიქრობს და ბევრსაც წარმოიდგენს ხოლმე.“ ეს განწყობა გაყვება მთელს ფოტო-ალბომს და უცხო ჯავახეთს გიცოცხლებს. პირველად 2005 წელს დაიბეჭდა, ეს ალბომის მეორე გამოცემაა.
მოხარულები ვართ გაცნობოთ ჩვენი ონლაინ ახალი აქტივობის შესახებ - ეს იქნება ლექსიკონი, რომელსაც დავდებთ სპეციალურად საქართველოს სტუმრებისთვის, ჩვენი სტუდიის შრიფტებით, SPECIAL CHARACTERS პროექტის ფარგლებში.
Long time no see.
How does it happen that we become strangers to ourselves? How easy is it to disconnect and act from projections?
Creating is such a powerful practice because it requires truth. As Rodin said art only starts from inner truth.
Finished customizing my new watercolor palette! I started with the inexpensive 12 pan plastic palette I got for 2 bucks at hobby lobby in the second pic. I cut up a plastic card to subdivide the wells, glued my old UH ID (go Coogs!) on the side and covered it with fabric to hold my fav wc brushes. Then, I used a hammered beer cap glued to the bottom with a key ring for a thumb loop, and glued on a cut-up rubber bandit to stop the palette from sliding on the table. Oh yeah, I made a custom cover for the wells out of an old piece of leather, some discount fabric I had left over, and a cut up zip-lock bag as a liner to keep that water in the wells where it belongs! I’m more than a little excited to put this little guy to work!
LOOK AT THIS POMPOM 😁💐🌸 tapestry is making great progress! much like pretty well everything in .y life, I have no plan or any idea where this piece is going or what I'll find and create along the way. I just LOVE going with the flow and am so excited that I was playing with my pink chunky yarn and came up with this super cute little pompom. just slightly obsessed and paused my process specifically to have a photoshoot with it 🙈
Lhérisson Dubréus (b. 1971, Cap-Haïtien, Haiti; lives and works in Port-au-Prince) grew up in the Bel Air neighborhood, which has an established tradition of sequined Vodou flag production. Dubréus’s practice has evolved from traditional flags to include relief flags, decorated skulls, and mirrored figurative sculptures. He is credited for establishing and introducing the life-size Bizango sculptures to the art market. Bizango is one of many Haitian secret societies that were created after the revolution. Bizango works customarily consist of life-size stuffed textile human figures, often featuring a human skulls and decorative mirrors. These were shown in the travelling exhibition “Vodou: A Way of Life” which originated at the MEG in Geneva, Switzerland. Dubréus’ decorated skulls each represent a different spirit from the artist’s own set of cosmological aesthetic codes. His work has been exhibited at the Grand Palais, Paris, France (2014); the 11th Havana Biennial, Havana, Cuba (2012); the Etnografiska Museet, Stockholm, Sweden (2011); and the Musée d’Ethnographie, Geneva, Switzerland (2008), among others. His work is part of the collection of the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris.
Join us for the April 26 Reception for "PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince" from 6-9pm.
Special performance by Rara Lakay and Jazz@MOCA with LeNard Rutledge at 8pm
Introspective Thinker: Edward Hopper was a realist who depicted stark urban landscapes and isolated figures in stunning clarity. He was known for his serious demeanor, and he disliked self-promotion or anything “showy”. He believed in being true to history, which caused him professional discord from time to time. Once, when he was hired to design a movie poster featuring the Napoleonic wars, he illustrated the soldiers in French uniforms of that period only to be instructed later to cater to popular American taste. He disliked this because he felt it was inauthentic, and hated improvising or creating something that didn’t maintain historical accuracy. Hopper was known for being responsible, quiet, and observant. He perfectly captures the accuracy and detail-oriented nature of the Introspective Thinker. Are you an Introspective Thinker?

The inconsistency of paint pouring keeps me coming back for more and more. I love how I may set out with a direct idea in mind, but more likely than not the paint settles in a way I hadn't thought off. - - Sometimes I'm unhappy with the results although this just means I may need a little time to adjust. Just like life. 😊
Good Morning y'all!! Hope you all have a wonderful week going forward and remember to keep your head up 👍
