My work has changed

These look best together. I photographed images from movies and media, and manipulated them in Photoshop. Then I created paintings from the changed images. I have an idea that our perceptions are false, and therefore when we look at people we see our false images of them. Movies, photographs and stories in the media all serve to cloud or blur our vision. Hence the blurriness of some of these, as well as the soft focus in others.

Who am I anyway?

I have gotten tired of presenting myself to others. So I decided to just be real-for me, not for anyone else. In a world where we are watching ourselves 24/7 and almost never allowed to be anything but restrained and polished because who knows who may be looking, I have embarked on a series of paintings I call “Sloppy Selfies”. And I have included two other paintings as well, containing images that have pestered me for awhile.

A new season

I am looking forward to the new art season, and I am honored to have been selected as a National Artist with the A.I.R. Gallery in Brooklyn, NY. From late May to late June of 2016, the National Artists will be exhibited in a group show at the gallery. When I lived in NY I visited the A.I.R. Gallery often, finding it inspirational. At that time, it was located in SoHo. It is the first all women, artist-run gallery. Read more about the gallery’s history and mission. In a time when women make up 60% of art students, but only 30% of the artists being shown in galleries and museums, it is as important as ever for women to have a place to share our art.
