i have seen a couple and they look great! the details isn't too great but hey, it's free (kinda of). it doesn't look like her other drawings that she has sold that are larger because she doesn't use the ink wash technique... it's basically a sketch that you can get from her at a show but done on a small piece of tea stained paper. stiill pretty nice.
my next show is a solo show at thinkspace gallery in august... (though i haven't even started really working on them, yikes!! ) and i'm feeling something more raw, looser, and darker. maybe more mythical and allegorical (in personal myth and allegory kind of way, at least in my own eyes).
i've been sort of feeling this for a long time, but after the trip, an overall ideas and directions have generally become more focused. the trip kind of acted as a reset (being back to my roots, etc) and at the same time giving me a little more lucidity.
sitting on the photos from the trip and mulling over the memories kind of gave me a newfound sense of my place. not having had any family around me for over a decade, it's easy to forget where i came from, my original roots. and how important that can be for one's present and future. trite and corny, but i kind of feel a sense of that "root" again now, and feel that i can see and think more clearly, work-wise.
so... it's off to a slow start, since this is pretty much all i've done, thinking, pondering, planning, all in my head, and some ink splatters.
randomness sometimes helps see outside my own habits, though.
I'm not really feeling these new pieces. The tones and colors are definitely an interesting direction, but I don't like how her girls have progressed. They seem to be bottling up more pain and anguish than they did before. Also, they've taken on a more Asian look. Eurasian > Asian.
