BeCore Hosted Art Show

Downtown La ....ah the fires, the hipness! I usually stay away...however very good friends of mine @ BeCore, an experiencial marketing company, asked me to be part of collaborative show they are doing for Xmas and i said heck ..why NOT! The space itself is amazing and its a show that is connected to a new fox show coming out about relationships called man seeking woman.

All of my pieces are about relationships...relationships with the environment, our food, each other. Im proud to be a contribution and i hope you can all make it.

I am debuting a new piece from my new series as well called Power Animals - Owl.


Mona Lisa Book

A while back i used to paint in color.  During that time i replicated my version of the Mona Lisa creating it as on of the toys i played with as a kid which was a hand me down fashion face Barbie.  When i got it from a neighbor kid it was already stained with lipstick.  I remember i tried a bunch of cleaning products on it to clean it up and nothing work.  I actually ruined the vinyl and made it super shiny on her cheek where i scrubbed really hard.

Years later as an adult had taken a trip at the time to visit the Louvré and like everyone says... the Mona Lisa is just not what i thought it would be.  It was small in some crazy encasement and had crowds of people around it.  It was much like my experience as a child when i got that handme down disappointment of an iconic toy.

This was how i saw the Mona Lisa..a powerful woman on paper and not much in person & somehow i was very grateful to have met her.
