DISCUSSION

"Emergency Empire"

October 2002, Tompkins Square Plaza, NYC

Our complicity in the war because of encouraged addiction to motor oil.

Video behind - a compilation of current car, SUV and motor oil TV adds.

I lay on a collage of blow ups from the phonebook. I cover myself with army camouflage colors, finally red from a motor oil container.

Duration: 7 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.
