These are not new thoughts....how the world isn't made for pretty much anyone who isn't a white, male.....how if you deviate from the medium (norm), you will be excluded (from society and validation).....how if you want to make a living at something like art, it will be a huge struggle.
But it is new to think the show must go on....it's new to think....yes, and I'm still enjoying myself. I'm still enjoying this vast and strange world....I'm still enjoying being a woman of color....I'm still enjoying the way I look, act and what I value.....and I'm still enjoying creating art. These ideas have cropped up as I have lost my solo art show at the gallery in the wake of the plans being destroyed. Even if I don't know what's going to happen to the art....I mean my art.....I'm still making it. The show still must go on....at least.....for me.
Here are some of the things that I've been working on for that big, beautiful solo show.
Sorry, not sorry for being such a tease about it and only giving you a little peek. Stay tuned for more work in progress in the weeks to come.
