DISCUSSION

“TENDER’, a performance about money and the economy.

We see cash as cold and dead and inhuman, but it is the product of our primary human quality to balance, weigh and value and then to share, trade and sell.

Our INTRINSIC IMPULSE TO BUY & SELL brings people, communities and civilizations together and is central to the human experience.

People place money and the economy as a force unto itself and often as the enemy. But the only reason the dollar is accepted it is because we accept it.

The primary human dichotomy is that of debtor and creditor. The scale of justice is our own body. Primordial debt can be cleared by complete respect and tender care for the earth, the only true wealth.

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.
