So happy to have had Nicole Jean Hill photograph my exhibit at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Humboldt county last week. I got images just in time to apply for a mid-career fellowship. I didn’t install the work for this exhibition, and was a little uncertain about the configuration of the “Spread” masses on the wall. When I last installed this piece, there was no space between shapes and far less of the guts spilling out from them, but I have come around. I still want to make ten times the amount there currently are for an installation. I want them oozing off the wall!
And here is one of the new dolls. It was funny to see it up with some of the original ones and how the color palette has changed. I just love this measuring tape.
Still waiting to here on one of my proposals, and that will probably determine what I decide to focus on this next year. Four more days. Fingers crossed.
I had a pony named "Hot Shot" that was nearly the same color. Then I graduated to a spiteful Appaloosa, and finally to a Quarter horse. My mom now has a mother/daughter donkey duo that I have yet to meet. They just have the greatest ears and kindest eyes.
In my studio along with some other little critters. Sometimes I think my animals can get a little too similar in body shape to my sewing ladies. I am so glad this guy is a meaty no neck. And I am just noticing that all my animals lean to the left....maybe because I am right handed?
I just adore sloths. Do you know they do a dance to poop? Sometimes I feel like a little boogie is needed to get things moving.
His left eye can move in the socket, and sometimes he just looks so confused. Or high. I can't decide if I should let it be. It might be a good look for a sloth.
SoI have been working on little silly figure that wasn't supposed to take me long, but did, I am making her a whole bunch of kitchen dishes and cutlery. I"m not sure why, just felt like she needed them.
The eyelashes and rain boots are my favorite part.
