First Friday Artist Reception
MAKE MORE CAKE / revel and reclamations
This second of my two 2019 Portland SOLO shows, ‘MAKE MORE CAKE / revel and reclamations’, offers up the power and PLAY of 4-letter words — FROM ‘bad’ words to ‘GOOD’ words to the phenom of knuckle tattoos.
My WORK reminds us to [en]counter the cynic and the closed-hearted (we’ve all BEEN there) — to STAY earnest and caring in the midst of so MUCH suffering in the world, locally and globally. WITH REAL props to artists who remind and SHOW us the world is totally burning, my WORK reminds us that the world is ALSO totally turning and HERE we are and together. and so:
Following the thread of a dream years ago, and indulging in my LOVE of WORD games, i am purposefully juxtaposing the boundary of 4-letter words combinations WITH the fresh unpredictability of unstretched canvas and paper and a loose painting style.
Set yourself DOWN. you are already HOME.
Show Dates: Dec 6th – Jan 31st 2020
