it didn’t hit me until just now. i chose the name only just recently [as is often the case]. it had a lyrical quality to it that i liked very much, plus it does have a bit of surrealism as lent to… Continue
actually, there are few things that are bothering me about the piece that i don't feel it's actually "complete" but i'm okay with this for now.
this upper part came apart after i began to "secure" the back end [with the sun] to it. i added more eye hooks to both the bottom and middle piece to weave wire through and make it extremely secure. that… Continue
In March 2010, there will be a series of events in Mexico City, Mexico, Los Angeles, California, and other cities, meant to be a ritual of mourning for the femicides in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua: Art as a pathway of opposition and resistance to violence.
We invite you to be part of this initiative of art activism. Below is the link to the blog we have dedicated to this and where you will find the Call for Entries. This invitation is open to all individuals, groups, organizations, artists and activists. The events in March 2010 will include awareness raising creative workshops, intervention actions, plays and performances and the exhibition of the art work received through the call for entries and the resulting art from the workshops. http://unaoracionporjuarez.blogspot.com/
For those who do not live in Mexico City or Los Angeles metropolitan areas, we invite you to organize your own community activity during the same month of March, 2010. It could be an Art Exhibit, a book discussion, a movie screening, a poetry reading, etc. We ask you to include the original title of this event “A Prayer for Juarez,” and to send us your schedule, and later on, photos and documentation, to be included in the blog.
To include your event, or for any kind of issue related, please write to us:
In the US: firstname.lastname@example.org
In Mexico: email@example.com
Creating protest art transcends culture and gender. We are united in a larger community of like-minds and humanitarian goals. We thank you in advance for your dedication and your prayers for the women of Ciudad Juarez. NI UNA MAS!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS DATA TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW
WHO WOULD BE INTERESTED IN PARTICIPATING
I loved your Frida box. The "Rusty Things" book I already have. Love it. Years ago I painted a 'tripkit' (probably misspelled) that I bought from Michaels. I just love the old, weathered, rusty, metal and wire look. Keep up your beautiful work! You're amazing!
Your work is incredible! Your boxes, installations, paintings. You must be a full time artist? How could you have time to do anything else when you have such a huge body of work? Anyway, congratulations on doing fabulous work. You are a great inspiration. Ay, Honey....I need to work harder!
