this piece is in an exhibition called by a thread which opened friday at the san jose institute for contemporary art .
there is an artist talk on thursday night and i will be there. first standing by my piece to answer any questions about it [they mandate this!] and then as part of a panel talking about the exhibition. if anyone is in the south bay and wants to see me wiggle and squirm in front of my piece - i'll be there!
this is an older piece of mine. they are all self-portraits - the images of me i collected when i went to visit my parents. they were all wallet sized photos - and thus the title of the piece is "wallet sized me". i'm showing the wrong side [back] of the embroidery. the side you don't see is actually neatly stitched. there are a couple reasons for this - one of which is just to reveal what is normally hidden.
this was my passport photo when i was 2.
and some press :: i'm the blog beautiful feature in uppercase magazine issue 4 - thanks martha . uppercase is really really really a beautiful publication. they do a bang up job.
and just because :: the plum trees are blossoming all over the place. i brought a few branches in to make it feel like spring.
i took this photo using my iphone and the hipstamatic app . man is that a fun app to play with.
hope everyone is having a good week. today there were blue skies and big fluffy clouds. fluffy clouds always make me happy.
