I wanted to explore textiles this winter break, so I tried to use as many different materials in a piece as possible. This is the result. I have some more fabric WIPs at home, but they’ll have to wait a while before I can finish em.
This piece was my first toe dip into oil pastels. I really loved them and am definitely gonna use them again soon! The idea of “Rhubarb” is something I’ve been building up in all my work for the last few years, but am just now putting a name to.
These are ceramic lighters, bowls, and cigarettes, strung on yarn. Hand painted, hand everything, this took forever . but in an un-obtrusive way. Meaning, I worked for like a month on this, but only for about thirty minutes every few days. #slavetothefiringschedule
This is a poster I made to hang in an elementary school classroom in the future. There are barcodes at the bottom so the robot children can read it too. Gonna do more in this vein, the future is cool. My future is at least.
(It also inspired the new theme for this blog, as evidenced by the fact that it blends in to the background haha)
This is a setting I made for World Aids Day 2018. I hand-made the tray in ceramic and painted my version of Haring’s Fight Aids Act Up. I found the cookies in the trash on 16th street.
This is a tapestry I made of the New York Health and Racquet Club on 13th st. It’s right across the street from the Blick I go to and I always thought it was cool, so I made something of it. Sewing is hard, but not too hard. I’ll do it again but no time soon.
This is my friend Grace, in her room in our dorm. Its acrylic on canvas. I love the style of this, its the way I usually paint with acrylic but I expanded it beyond human forms into buildings and objects. I super-love her left hand, kinda hate the right one (from her perspective).
