& if ya really want to buy something, come out THIS Thursday to The Hardback in Gainesville, Florida and pick up one of my original smoke drawings for only with half the money going to the formally incarcerated women at Lowell Prison whose stories I use in each piece. 🙂 Awesome show too – Baby Killers opens at 10pm!
Buy Nothing Day
New smoke drawing series “Jail Flowers,” my first since 2015! Smoke & Wax on paper with cut-up stories from past and current female inmates at Lowell Prison, just south of Gainesville, featured in the Winter 2019 edition of The Fine Print – an independent arts & culture mag in Gainesville, FL.
“Jail Flowers” is a work-in-progress, and along with completing 9 smoke drawings to match the 9 stories, I’ll also be going over the images with jail-issued pen and deodorant for paint and will use a tampon for a brush – materials often used by prisoners for painting. *sample pictures here are low res&underexposed
I got caught up in facebook land. It’s definitely been a helpful bulletin board/show getter but also it’s been soul-sucking and time-consuming. When all is said and done with Baby Killers shows which is happening this month, I’ll be retiring my account for a while while I work on new songs and artwork. In the meantime, here’s the latest Bruise News/Letter. Thanks for reading!
And here’s a cool tree from jungly Gainesville, FL:
