E3: Seven Women Artists
with
#AmyLaskin | #BeretteMacaulay | #MiriamHinds-Smith | #PrudenceLovell
at the National Gallery of Jamaica.

I’ve learned plenty about the mad processes of the other artists in our show. We #SevenWomenArtists cover such a wide range of creative genres:::~
#magicalrealism #painting and #sculpture, metal and jewelry art, #textileart, book binding, #illustration, #photography/#analogphoto #collage, mixed media #decoupage #installation, #woodwork, #glassart, …yeah the full gamut! And everyone is unique, deep, and utterly meticulous. Just an amazing experience. #Curator O'Neil Lawrence did a great job.

See you Sunday!

Play at Work | In Studio:

Despite foot injury tales I’ve also been back in studio creating work for 3 new opportunities. It took getting the flu however to start sharing more tho…from bed. 😁 Got a few complex things going on so will do my best to explain.

I have this custom rope/chord thing that I’ve been using for a few years in my installation work, and decided to play with it on myself too. Braid on #braids if you will. Made from #hemp and cotton twine. So that’s the playtime foto you see here. Will be incorporated into a #phototransfer #lightbox later. 😆 The last (solo) show I did in Jamaica - #CocooningCatharsis at #HiQoGallery, featured a #cocoon I made out of #burlap and #coconut #coire hanging from an upside down tree. Yeah. 😉. It was meant to represent a cocoon holding the children of #Mnemosyne…the #NineMuses. It’s been hard for me and my team to reproduce it because we can’t find more soft burlap. So - walking around in a shop I found coire shaped bowls!! Hmmm…and Um…inspiration! #neverfinished
