reconfiguring, remaking, rethinking…
Collages and other stuff is up for grabs at my online store now!
Available in the Art Shop on Colonel’s Row #404, artists in the show have contributed small works for visitors to take home. I’ll have some collage studies on view and for sale there. The images used are from studio and detail photographs of the installation I am presenting.
Small collage (8″x10″) on gold-flecked/trimmed board.
This October, I’ll be working with Michelle Marroquin and the Team to bring a 3 part dance performance to life at Eastworks in Easthampton, MA. Marroquin describes the piece as being about “women, attire, and the pressure to conform”. The choreography is smart and refreshing- full of whit, daring and a little gum-smacking. I’m excited for the challenge of working with moving bodies- I’ve been commissioned to design costumes for the show’s 2nd act which will feature a cast of 7 teenage dancer/choreographers.
In the studio, I’m busy making headdresses using mixed martial arts headgear as bases. It made sense as far as keeping things in place and being lightweight and served my concept in that I wanted to make these a bit more futuristic sci-fi armor than show-girl. The materials and the forms reference ideals and caricatures,deities and goddesses, princesses and cheerleaders, power suits, trophy wives and home makers, miss universe, princess leia, little bo peep and mrs. roper.
(The Team has just a little bit of a week to reach their fundraising goals- interested in helping them make their goal? Check out the fundraising campaign here !)
