ANTHROPOS

"little did they know there was a harem in the basement", acrylic on canvas, 6 x 6 inches

This image has a strong connection for me in the faces of the workers, I was compelled to make the larger version right away, continuing with the series of very small to small to medium, gradually abstracting and zooming in as the size increases.

ANTHROPOS

"little did they know there was a harem in the basement", acrylic on photopaper, 2.25 x 2.25 inches

This is what the woman who owns the house that used to belong to my mother's family told us when we went to visit her in greece.

ABAD

The latest ABAD (A Book About Death) show is opening in Seattle on November 11, 2011. This is my entry. Since dreaming about teeth indicates some sort of death (or so I am told) they seemed significant to go with the photo of a band of high school boys from an old yearbook.

I also have all my postcards ready for the postcard collective mailing. I decided to blow up one of my recent paintings on the front of the postcard and then on each back do an individual design with tape, stickers and colored pencils. I am looking forward to seeing what the other artists are sending.

INVISIBLE

"she looked at me oddly", collage on paper, 4 x 6 inches

In this series of collages I am exploring the relationship between discrimination, color and age by using the pages from Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, superimposing the "invisible" bodies of the highly fashioned models and over printing with clear varnish.

Created for a collage exchange at IMCAC (International Museum of Collage, Assemblage and Construction) one of which will be retained in their permanent collection.
