Woke up felling the stuffyness from a cold I’m going through and decided to jump on here for a bit since I hadn’t done anything in a while. I have joined the borg on facebook and I update that more often than here. I think I just need to parcel out my focus a little better.
I was at the local stitch n bitch tonight – I’ve continued to crochet which I started about a year and a half ago. I will post an image of the first pieces I did which were inspired by an exhibition of the crochet reef at the Chicago Cultural center by the group Institute for Figuring
More laters, I’m glad to be finding others that still like to work with their hands.
My kitten was very curious and would not get out of the frame so I took the picture with her in there. Her name is Fierce because she used to hiss at everyone when we first took her in. She was just a few months at the time of the picture. She is now just over a year old and will still give you the WT… look.
Older piece of mine that I really like. It was a reduction print so the plate was changing every time I carved into it
So it took a bit to get back on here. I will have posts on some stuff later but for now here are some more images.
Digital manipulated images from 1999/2000
part of a series of 4 entitled ‘Sueño con Serpientes’ inspired by song by same name from Silvio Rodriguez.
These are photos of my installation at Columbia College for the ‘Lo Romantico’ show curated by Jesus Macarena Avila
The idea of the piece was to fetishize a microwave in an altarpiece. It was a critique on what role ‘success’ and ‘convenience’ play on the destruction of food based cultural traditions. There were tortillas and cheese available if anyone wanted to make a microwave quesadilla.
