Anthony is an amazing artist and director, if you ever need anything directed hit him up, he’s great. He also is doing ISV which helps promote new upcoming artists. If you have artwork, submit it to his website and it can be published on a web zine.
creeping through a side window… it’s fun watching people get into whatever it is that they are doing without them knowing you are watching them.. yes, that sounds total creep status, in my defense, alberto made me :)
So I currently had a photo show curated by the lovely Ophelia Chong titled “LA Drive Bye” with many Art Center photo students and grads.
I took it upon myself as a challenge to shoot strangers in LA, with their permission of course for the photo show. It was definitely a challenge for me, being that I am an incredibly shy person and had to go up to strangers and ask if I could take their portrait, many of course said no but the few that did encouraged me to keep going. These are two people that let me take their portrait, so thank you Ophelia, for giving me the opportunity to do something that i’ve never done before and have it displayed in an art show in LA.
so i’m graduating in less than a month. i’ve been working on my grad show which is why i haven’t really updated my blog in a while. these are a couple of outtakes from what my show will be, a series of portraits of my sisters and myself included in them.
i have been blessed to get such wonderful sisters, and wanted to show our relationship and just show honesty.
this is errol gerson. he teaches at art center college of design, i took his class during 3rd term. after that, i never really talked to him. i am now in my 7.5 term at art center. i have talked to him and realize how amazing he is and so inspirational. his passion to help and teach students is amazing. my regret is being so shy that i never go and talk to professors about my work and who i am. talking to him was so inspirational, i realized i need to stop being shy, i’m only hurting myself. my work is for myself and for the world. it’s ok to be fearless when it comes to your work, it’s your art and your life. being an artist can be quite difficult but it’s one of the most rewarding jobs.
i’ve always loved photographing trees but ever since i read “my giving tree” by shel silverstein i’ve taken a different approach when i photograph my trees… it’s given me a complete new insight on trees.
and that’s my secret when it comes to trees. they have so much life and love also i can’t help think of my mom as my own giving tree.
everytime the wind blows through a tree i can feel her…
