Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos (for all you gringos out there, it’s “Day of the Dead”;)) is a Mexican holiday focused around remembering loved ones who have died. So I saw online that the gallery, Altered Esthetics in NE Minneapolis, was holding an open call for artists to participate in their Dia de los Muertos show on November 1, 2012.

I was told that as long as the piece fits in with the theme, it’s a shoe-in, so participating in the show wouldn’t necessarily be something that I could include on my resume, but I was interested in participating anyway because, like most artists, I’m a bit obsessed with themes that revolve around death, and I just so happened to have a piece that fit with the theme:

“Separation of Earth and State,” Muertos Show, Altered Esthetics

So there it is. I’m looking forward to the day when I can share some really exciting news about my work with you all, but for now, every little bit of exposure is much appreciated.

Thanks so much for viewing!


Separation of Earth and State

Sculpture is something that I’ve always been interested in, and as far back as I can remember, I would sit for hours upon hours just completely immersed in sculpting little human heads and busts out of Sculpey clay.  So I decided to combine two art forms that I love: Painting and sculpture.  The result is my new painting, “Separation of Earth and State;” the head and breast are little sculptures that I mounted onto the canvas and painted.  It was such a fun and interesting process, something I’ll surely try again.

Thanks for veiwing!
