Some day, I’m going to put all my feelings about people who tell me to pursue music instead of or more than burlesque into an eloquent blog post, combining all my theories about respectability politics and slut shaming and low brow art and society’s belief that women don’t understand how to run their own lives into one place.

Until then, I’m just going to sulk and be mad when people say dumb shit to me at shows.

Finally finished my new painting for “Lacrima Acquarium”, a wonderful upcoming group exhibition in Rome…

LACRIMA AQUARIUM Institutional Group Exhibition

Acquario Romano Museum – Casa Dell’Architettura – Rome, Italy.

In collaboration with Dorothy Circus Gallery Curated by Alexandra Mazzanti and Giorgio de Finis From December 6th till December 30th 2013 opening reception friday December 6th 2013 at 6.30 pm

Lacrima Aquarium is a project curated by Alexandra Mazzanti and Giorgio de Finis, in collaboration with the Contemporary Art Gallery Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome. The exhibition is dedicated to the most essential and female element, the water and its possible memory which can feed and rebuild our lives. Lacrima Aquarium brings to the stage the works of 33 artists, painters and sculptors from the new international pop surrealism scene, which represents the vanguard of contemporary figurative art. The artworks some from private collections, some brand new, composed on the theme of Water, will express through a dreamlike vision, the meaning of what the “Mother Tear” brings inside itself of the collective imaginary. Drop by drop the artists will create for the inspiring hall of the Roman Aquarium the ghost of a mother’s womb able to accept new doctrines, dreams and thoughts. During the opening event will be displayed the art video by Arash Radpour “La Creazione” and will be as well presented the first and the second volumes of Dorothy Circus Gallery’s annual catalogue, published by Drago Publishing and worldwide distribiuted by Last Gasp.
