Snakes and Ladders

Snakes and Ladders
Opening: October 6, 2012, 5-7 PM

Please join me for the opening of my solo show featuring suits, headdresses, drawings, artist books and sculptures from "The Lottery Project." The lottery is the most Democratic of ways to make a buck. Any day, someone can climb to win, and then turn around and slide down a serpentine slope the next. Pieces in this exhibition are made from cast off scratch tickets, security envelopes from financial institutions, betting slips near my home and from visits around the region. Part survey show of the past six years and new work.

On view at the AS220 Project Space from October 7-27, 2012.

The AS220 Project Space is located at 93 Mathewson St. Providence, RI.
Open: Wed-Fri: 1pm-6pm, Sat: Noon-4pm & by appointment.

Back in the studio finishing unfinished things. My daughter pulled a book about origami off the shelf today. She pulls out lots of books these days, but this one caught my eye. I have had a dilemma for a year now about creating a different heel for a pair of boots I am making for a friend. I made an art trade in 2010 with my friend Michael Aaron McAllister. I still owe him a pair of boots. I got pregnant right around the promise, then had Asha. I finally have moments where I can think for long periods of time again re:early bedtime for baby.

I wanted a particular angle to the heel. I mean, a FAB heel, as the new owner would is fabulous. The heel is the thing that gives each boot piece life..a suggested arc of movement. Flipping through the book I started paying attention to the diagrams. The line of one finally made me go,"Oh,that's the way it should fold...." Finally. So simple I could not see it. I played with a piece of scrap paper and there it is.
