Recent events: Dissilience

Thanks to Su Pang and Miss Vanilla, curators and photographer (Su) and musician (MV) respectively, for including me in a one-night, all-woman show last weekend in Dumbo at Rabbithole Studios. I was in the company of some talented women — Fina Yeung, Emily Strange, Sharela Bonfield, Katherine Kisa, Elaine Hargrove, Stephanie Calvert, Anne Spurgeon, Lia Zuvilivia, Rose DeSiano

In my years participating in group shows in New York, this was one of the best, most satisfying and surprising. Su, who lives across the country, picked our work from online images, and wasn't sure what she was getting into. Neither were we! The level of craftsmanship and fusion between content (which varied greatly from artist to artist) and craft in each woman's work exceeded any expectations I might have had. I was in awe when I stepped into the gallery to hang my work. I had found a group of peer artists, with little effort on my part except for answering Su's emails, showing up with a hammer and some nails.

Below are a couple of installation shots of my work. For more images taken by Su Pang from the exhibit and performances, visit Facebook.
