Thinking of producing some shirts for my upcoming show.
With my solo exhibition nearing every day, I made this social media friendly flyer.
Fun Fact: I chose to use this piece, "Beauty Standard" as the iconic piece for this show because of its use of new style for me as well as the reminder of the tolls women have to go through every single day just to be presented as women.
The three pieces in this picture have been laying around my art room for over six months, taking up space and reminding me of how excellent my procrastination skills are. I finally got the motivation to finish them after reading various articles about art all day, realizing that I am not tapping into my full potential. Finishing these pieces feels like a weight lifted off of my shoulders. I am so excited to display these in my solo exhibition.
I am ecstatic to be able to announce my upcoming solo exhibition, Femme Reflections. I thought on what I wanted the central theme of this show to exhibit, and through examination of my previous pieces I have realized that women have played a strong central character in almost all of my pieces. I am unapologetically enchanted by women themselves and end up painting things that mystify me. I am by no means a conventional woman myself, which allows me to appreciate the women that are and relate to those that are not.
Although the show is going to be exciting in and of itself, I am also extremely eager to have everyone that attends to be able to see my extremely talented friends perform. There will be four bands: Lealani, Delete Insert, The Rafters Multimedia Group and Fortune Boy. All of these people that will be playing are near and dear to my heart and some my friends I admire the most. To be able to use my solo exhibition to also draw people into being able to witness something that has driven my creativity so immensely, whether or not they realize the people playing are some of my biggest inspirations, will be so rewarding.
I have printed about a thousand of these flyers and cannot hand them out fast enough, I even mailed one to Snoop Dogg and the mayors of all of the surrounding towns. Shoot for the stars and you'll hit the moon, right?
