"FrY Free"

Sun baking on the America flag using motor oil as suntan oil.
(20 minutes)

act 2

The oily flag is taken away with respect, to
reveal 7 x 4 ft of white Arches (watercolor) paper beneath.
I lay on the white paper and am littered with trash / white fabric.
The paper, fabric and I are covered with water. When wetted down the strips of fabric become whip like. I stain them with ink and fling them out beside me to create stripes.
I shoot red, white and blue ink from guns (water pistols) slung around my waist.


Duration: 70 minutes

MISSION STATEMENT

I am returning to my roots as a painter, where I first discovered my talent, lost my identity/my sense of separation in process - painting portraits. For the next 2 years I am only painting portraits. Abstraction & performance art lend to my feeling immortal now I am mother I feel human, more grounded & more vulnerable than ever and I am pulled to dive in.

I will open an exhibITion MUDBIRD, Dec 9 2015 at TBG (my studio/gallery). I PREPARE the space for my new show & my new direction.

A zen studio to paint commissions in & bring my subjects into & also the option to rent a part of it out as event space gives me a solid base to generate a reliable income for me & my baby.

All the signs look good. I have started all the preliminary work to transform my space and life. I am excited to be re-creating my space to provide a secure future for my son which also allows me to continue making art. Your contribution would enable me to transition to the next phase of my arts practice.
