Feminist Art in the Trump Era

I’m very pleased to be a part of this upcoming show at Axle Contemporary in Santa Fe!

Feminist Art in the Trump Era

juried by Lucy R. Lippard

September 11 – November 3

Feminist Art in the Trump Era is an exhibition of works by 27 New Mexico based artists that explore various feminist realities and rants. Works chosen for this exhibition from an open call to New Mexico based artists resonate with the hopefully soon- to-be-extinct Trump era. The exhibition will take place on the occasion of the 100 year anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution and the 10 year anniversary of the founding of the Axle Contemporary mobile artspace.

Fairy Houses

Maternal Mitochondria

In 2017, the Maternal Mitochondria creative team went to Japan. There we saw so many kinds of spirit houses—from Shinto shrines to municipal pagodas to small portable altars. When we came home to New Mexico, we wanted to build our own.

The initial three fairy houses are open! (We hope to create a total of nine). Each is made of recycled metal. And each houses a poem that tells the tale of its denizens—the supernatural creatures who work and party in each.

The Cabin is lit up from within by the fire of the earth’s core. Brownie miners descend to seek riches in the earth.

The Cantina is a way station where fire foxes—messengers of the divine—can take a break from their delivery rounds and have a drink.

The Mushroom is a landing pad for winged pixies, even as it is part of the natural cycle of birth and decay.

Sacred Art

These Kohen Hands will be available for purchase through the Springfield Art Association for the 2020 Liturgical and Sacred Art Festival in Springfield, IL, which runs from March 28th through April 25th.

This sculpture is hand carved from basswood and sits on a cherry base. It is an homage to the lost art of Eastern European Jewish woodcarving, a cultural heritage which was destroyed in the pograms and Shoah. Kohen hands are considered to be a priestly blessing in Judaism.

Please contact the gallery directly if you are interested in purchasing.
