More Work from Spring 2011

These are two of the other three pieces I completed this Spring. The first SurvivorBot was a piece I donated to the annual Breast Cancer Benefit show that the NEO Rollergirls take part in every year. I was contacted by Vanity Scare to paint her bust for the show. Below is what I came up with. This piece is dubbed "SurvivorBot" and is a piece dedicated to cancer survivors who are in the midst of recovering.

The second piece "But By Then It Was to Late to Walk Away" is about become so rooted and trapped in a sitution that you can't leave. Sometimes you wait and think so long about something, that it eventual pins you down to the point that you can't move. This piece as well as "When It's Your Time, It's Your Time" are a bit wrinkled due to humidity issues in a gallery I was showing in. I have steamed some of the wrinkles out but they are not quite 100 percent. They are not as wrinkly in person as the pictures depict them to be thankfully.

Catching Up

After starting out the year with a lot of art, real life creeped in. The past 3 months have been divided between teaching, writing curriculum, taking a class at Ohio State, writing blogs for and announcing roller derby for the . Add on to that spending time with my girlfriend to keep my sanity and art went on the back burner for a bit. I did finish 2 pieces off during this time and a third that I am taking pictures of soon. The first piece is "When It is Your Time, It is Your Time". This piece is based off the idea of no matter what medical and technological advances we have achieved, over time we all break down, we all die. This is illustrated in this piece as the robot is hooked up to a number of life support machines but the little hourglass in it's chest is slowly emptying and turning into a coffin.
