It's been a while! Well this semester has started very well! I have lots of plans for work to make including hand printed pillows, plates galore, lots of sculpture and maybe even some reupholstering of the chairs that I used for my final performance last semester.
last semester I did a LOT of performance work, which was a huge turning point in my practice. I am working with topics of wealth, gluttony, pride and decadence now which will come forward in collage and ceramic sculpture. My first large work this semester is a bust of my friend Joel, which takes inspiration from Gustav Klimt's The Kiss ( I had the opportunity to see some of Klimt's work in Vienna and some of his imagery has found its way into my work, such as my performance Ophelia)
I have this semester packed with assignments, projects, show and sale, and my grad paper but I will try to keep you as updated as I can as I finish up my last semester before graduation on May 19th. I will be having lots of shows in April and May, plus the show and sale, so keep a look out for more information.
The best way to keep in the look with everything I am doing is through my Instagram, or Facebook
And if you have any questions, please send me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
April 4-15 I will be doing an endurance performance piece in the Marion Nicoll Gallery at ACAD. For 11 days I will spend 12 hours in the gallery, separating myself from secular society in order to focus on my personal and spiritual growth. I will spend my days practicing my cello, singing, dancing, making art, and reading. This performance will be a rite or passage for me between the life of being a Student of Art, and being an Artist.
at the end of last semester I also did some custom settings for a few friends for Christmas gifts. Also, this past weekend I had the opportunity to design the center pieces for my Church's West Stake Calgary Women's conference. I appreciate all of the help from the sister missionaries who helped set up, they did a wonderful job!
