Why? Feeling frustrated. I know we all do. I need to clear all this bad energy from my art process. I have had so many people in my art career/lifetime who have promised me connections, galleries-the moon! I wonder why anyone would make unnecessary gratuitous promises. Still working under outrageously difficult circumstances. Worse than yours? Maybe. Share them with me in comments. I’m Still Standing!

Pliny was an historian in Ancient Rome, around the time of the Pompeii disaster. ( will discuss that later!).
His encyclopedia was created from fact, best guesses, rumor, unverified accounts and utter garbage. All taken at face value as the truth. Feel you are getting closer to my premise?
I decided that I would do the same, with a conscious twist.
More on that tomorrow. Will we find our heroine tied to the train tracks? Will she finally tell you the total concept? Yes, I promise!Swoon

NH:Artificial InseminationHistory? Factual? Incendiary?  This is an earlier print-uses my favorite fetus linocut. Never knew how useful this plate was going to be. Many of these monoprints deal with feminist issues. Not a big surprise.

See you tomorrow.

 

 

 

And then I get food poisoning and flu?  Bad herring. A Swedish woman should know better than to eat fizzy herring. Up and at it today-somwhat.

Going to add another monoprint etching from the Natural History Series. Alphabetically. Been working this series for over 10 years. Over 100 unique prints. This is going to take us a while! Today’s Concept hint?= Pliny the Elder. Really.

Today’s Print is: N.H.: Acupuncture 12″ x 18″ image. Aquatint on copper. Lino. Soft ground etching. Trace Transfer monotype. Artist designed fonts. For sale, of course. I got hooked on this series when the 2nd one I printed got sold to a museum near Warm Springs, GA. Being a huge FDR worshipper ( thanks again for Lend Lease, Social Security, etc.), I took this as a sign.

NH:Acupuncture

Next info: had a gap in the last 5 years- due to illness. Might take a poll to see if that is of interest to anyone. I have really mixed views on this. Many people ( artists and critics) have told me lately that I should integrate my “story” and personal life into my artwork. Confessional. Would create the “breakthrough” needed to make me more relevant. Repellent to a quintuple Scorpio.

The first time I saw an artist in a national magazine, using her colonoscopy as part of her oeuvre, I knew things were going in a direction that concerned me. Since then: personal mutilation seems to be big. What? Maybe not amusing to me because I’ve been medically mutilated by surgeries since I was a teenager. Don’t get me wrong, HUGELY GRATEFUL to be alive.

Enough! Basta! Today is all about football! See you tomorrow! And please share this-need more followers! Will do the same for you.

Finally able to edit and publish the live performance of my video piece, “Prom”. May of 2010. Haven’t been able to work for quite some time–so glad to be starting back to my life again!  So, there is a long list of “must finish”.  This is one of them.  I did my first video artwork in 2009-got a chance to have a live performance in 2010.  Very last minute-I was lucky enough to have some great actress/improv/artist friends that stepped up to the plate.  Learning experience.  You really do need some kind of audio/lighting! This was made with a Flip videocamera on a tripod. Not so bad when you consider that.
It was a cold reading, without rehearsal. I think the actresses did a super job. Jen Bosworth, Jocelyn Geboy and Courtney Cole Brobst. The performance was at Art on Armitage in Chicago, IL., courtesy of Mary Ellen Croteau, who let me have the use of her gallery space!. Thanks so much for the opportunity. Good to be able to start working again.
On YouTube. The produced video version is on YouTube, too. Watch that one first.
My cousin, Meghan Stromberg was an actress in the video production. Scarily wonderful!  Jocelyn Geboy, a gifted improv performer, took over her part in the performance. ( Meghan was a little too pregnant with her daughter, Sabrina!).
The installation was created with a vintage mannequin and prom dress.  The fetus carpet was made from my original linocut printed on silk, sewn to felt and “sutured” with embroidery floss. About 5-6 feet in diameter.
(Hi, Yoko! I think you will find the subject matter unfortunately timely.)
