My Art Video-“Prom” + Update #4

Posted on: May 21, 2012

Hello!

Uploaded my art video to YouTube.  “Prom” explores social customs/psychological issues/law/culture/sexual exploitation.  Not my usual mode of exploring the universe.    

You can view more of the installation on my website:  Prom -Installation Pictures   The picture below is the “carpet” section on which the Prom dress and mannequin are installed.  Each fetus is a linocut print on colored silk-backed with felt and hand “sutured” with embroidery floss.  The floss is manipulated with acrylic medium to form the points of the “barbed wire” that has trapped the young women of the Prom.

I usually employ humor as a template for investigating the subjects that interest me.  My Natural History monoprint etching series is a prime example.  It comes naturally to me-and is a sneaky, teaching tool!  Once you have them laughing…

This video signals a real departure in my work.  I will explore what is important.  I will not edit my beliefs.

More good news on the project completion front: Today I should finish the first of the four 5 x 7 foot panels of “The Man Who Couldn’t Hear Orange.”   The other panels are coalescing into their final versions.  I will post detail pictures-I don’t have a space large enough, at the moment, to get a full shot of the panels.  This too shall arrive when needed!

Have a creative day!
