I am honored to be showing soon with Farnaz Shadravan, who has shown mostly in San Francisco, and her debut show at TAG Gallery will allow L.A. to enjoy her incredible work. I moved up my scheduled show from June, when I turn 50, to January. It was to avoid the stress of an exhibition during my special birthday, and to open up exhibition space for new artists at TAG later in the calendar year.
I thought I would finally do the “TwoGether” solo show I’ve been meaning to market to other galleries, but then I chose the theme #bodylanguage after I took an exciting storyboarding class. Once I picked that theme, it opened up more possibilities, and corresponded with the life drawings I was reworking to paint on Styrofoam substrates (still in progress). Since then I’ve had other ideas for old gelatin prints, and a sculpture I did in college that resonates with the the work I’m doing now. Since 2016, I’ve been painting pop-style hearts to reflect different emotions, so I’ll be showing those too! I’m excited about this colorful and figurative show—it incorporates all the elements of my work and focus over the last three years. The TAG Gallery Reception for our show is Saturday, January 26th, 5pm - 8pm. I hope you can make it! My exhibit e-mail misstated the Artists’ Talk date, it will be Saturday, February 9, at 3pm.
