Hair traces human genetics and is our rope back to the beginning of existence.
Nest is a series of paintings made from the imprint of human hair.  

Revolution toward liberty and survival is not so much found through violent or shocking change as it is in allowing the inherent and constant nature of all beings - to nest.  

The current world economy is based on ‘ home as property’ escalating to land theft so large that it warrants massacre, genocide and slavery. Law is established to protect the illusion of ownership. But no-one owns life or land, we are custodians not lords. Tenancy is just as valuable as ownership, without occupancy property crumbles - the revolution is “to nest”.  

A system of social order collapsing is a sign of evolution, a progression of the human psyche toward a more humanistic civilization. My performance is to make a nest painting with my own hair and body.

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.
