"Flag"

December 2002, NYC.

Blind patriotism resulting in blood for oil.

Behind me Father Frank Morales talks of giving last rights at ground zero.
I lay on a raw canvas wearing a long red dress. Cover my face and eyes with white paint. I pour on blue and mix with my body. Finally I pour red paint from a motor oil container on myself. The red white and blue.

Duration: 8 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.
