Getting ready for a few workshops this summer!
Found a copy of Maternal Mitochondria’s art project Spilled Ink in the shelves… If someone tries to buy this, Collected Works Bookstore is going to be really confused! Spilled Ink is a small chapbook filled with poetry, photography, and suminagashi from an artist residency at Wildacres in North Carolina. We had just read Amanda Palmer’s The Art of Asking, and I participated in the community that grew up around the book, sending free copies to people around the world (and sometimes getting weird, awesome book art in return). So we decided that Spilled Ink would not be purchasable, and would mostly be given to people who asked for it… I say mostly because I definitely foisted off a few on my poor friends! So it’s super fun to still find copies of this hidden around town.
New large collage piece, “Unexpected Encounters.” I was definitely supposed to be doing something else in my life drawing class! I like to think of it as a companion piece to these BFF pigs.
I’ve got a show coming up at a local diy venue in Santa Fe, Zephyr! There will be an opening & a suminagashi workshop as well. Not all of the pieces I’m posting here will be there, but these are all large works (22″x30″) and most of them will be for sale. The show will also feature a few other, smaller pieces.
Ah! The ancient pond
As a frog takes the plunge
Sound of the water
