Good thing I’m here to school all ya’ll that don’t know about the amazing Gabe and Leola of 1AEON. They make these amazing screen printed tees. Each one is different, thus ultra unique and to top things off, they are the nicest folks ya ever did meet. If yer one of the lucky peeps to meet them in person, say hi and make some new pals. Today I had the fantastic opportunity to chill with and model for some of the new designs. Look ma, I’m maaaaaaad old school. Yo and the whole ‘eye of the tiger’ thing is hard body.
I can’t lie I have a very peculiar fascination with this craft trend of making reborn dolls, I just can’t figure out what one would do with these. It’s like yer grandma and Chucky striking up a partnership. Craftsmanship is craftsmanship but these things are freaky.
This is some personal exciting news! Ya’ll may already know this but I’m the type of gal who likes to know how things work. I love to open up machines and figure out systems. This include bureaucratic systems such as taxes. I hate getting my taxes done. It drives me bonkers every year. This year after a little bit of a kick in the butt from a financial advisor I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. As of yesterday morning I just completed my personal and business taxes. It wasn’t thaaaaaaat bad, it was still bad though. I must admit that the satisfaction of doing it myself makes me feel pretty good. Now I just have to hope that i don’t get audited…I’ll keep ya’ll posted.
Okay so as usual junkprints is always in a state of flux.
Due to good karma and smart work I’ve landed an amazing new work spot in Red Hook Brooklyn!!!! Yay look at the pics. I’m still getting set up but this is the space….and check this out…I can see the freakin Statue of Liberty from my window. It’s like she hi-fives me every morning.
Can’t you just feel the love!
I almost forgot to tell ya! I’m having an opening tonight.
Insinuations brings together a group of artists who play with the implied notions, giving greater extent to the joining of image and object.
Chanel Kennebrew works in collage, exhibited as digital prints, which create a false image. She defines the reality of the modern day woman–exclusively portraying the modern day black woman. The advertising reality is stripped of its disguise, ironically in text-based masks, revealing its filtered version of real world through token expressions of diversity and the diminished self.
Anthony Miler creates objects to explore the dichotomy of institutions and constructs. Pairing numeratic sequences that provide a stimulace for thought and self-awareness.
Atisha Paulson’s photographs are lively city scenes where he explores the connections found within his environment. His double exposures create a conversation of object, color and form caught between moments and notations of memory.
Meghann Snow plays with history of culture and the institution of art, using video to document actions where the formality of art is deconstructed. Visceral and ephemeral, the acts played on film bring an innocence and new vision to the creation of visual art.
TemporaryGallery will present Insinuations March 5 through March 23 with an opening reception of March 5, 6-9pm.
So last week I was Etsy’s featured seller…Yah and all that goodness. Let me tell ya what a mad house it was (is) around this itty bitty apartment. Okay so I answered all 200 inquiries, within 2 hours or receiving them…gold star for customer service department! I’ve done invoices, packing slips and garment prep for all orders. I’ve shipped out about 1/3 of all the orders received between feb 27 to now… gold star for production department.
Sleep, you ask? well Robots don’t sleep and I’ve sold my soul to the D.I.Y. gods in exchange for being changed into a robot 😉
All jokes aside…this has been pretty fun and I appreciate all the comments, inquiries and sales I’ve been bombarded with.
I love how the fine folks over in Japan always manage to remix ‘Amercan’ culture, for example, i’ve met hard core Japanese Rastafarians and pan Africans and you’ve seen the strange barbie looking gals. I really do love it. Well, Obama, the Japanese city has found a new American icon, Barack Obama and has decided to boost tourism by selling tees and cakes with the candidates face on them. Amazingness! Read more about it here
You must read this entire story. In the mean time check out the following quotes from our most brilliant [pls insert sarcastic tone] president.
“This transition ought to lead to free and fair elections, and I mean free and I mean fair. Not these kinds of staged elections that the Castro brothers try to foist off as being true democracy,” Bush said. Can he really speak on staged elections? Him of all people, uh hemmm, Florida?
“And we’re going to help. The
Can’t say that Fidel was a saint, but let’s keep the whole situation in perspective.
I am very intrigued with words that we give too much power to, such as Nigger. Check out what he has to say about the title of his new album. The most fascinating part of this is the reporters demeanor and reactions to his comments.
