The Caravan 043: ANIMAL

When I saw the video for the first time I bit my lip and crossed my legs. "Kim," I whispered. "It's so sexy." When Kim Boekbinder asked me to be in the video I was full on hair knotted, no make-up and in a frenzy. I was leaving for New Orleans and more than frazzled. We went out for coffee and plotted. I knew I wanted to film it in NOLA. I knew I wanted to film it in The Banana Courtyard, an old brothel made Bed and Breakfast. She gave me a deadline and I gave my word to deliver.

Can I tell you what it's like to shape shift? Can I tell you what it's like to become an animal? It was late night and I had just gotten home from a glorious dinner with Lauren Cerand. It was her birthday and she was in NOLA the same time as me. Lauren is magic and this seemed like a night for magic. I had told the manager I'd be up late and may need a pot of Chicory coffee. My room was supplied and I set up. I shimmied out of my dress and set up the camera. There's something that shifts when you put on a song that moves you, that awakens something inside that makes you want to slither side to side or stretch long and lean like a cat on the prowl. Into the wee hours I taped myself getting lost in movement. I didn't care how I looked only that I was there and that I was alive, blood rushing, animalistic, free.

These gorgeous brilliant creatures all appear in the video with me. I know many but not all. It's the creative inspiring energy that brings out the animal in you. This my friends is why Kim Boekbinder is genius. The album is amazing. Do yourself a favor an buy it. Play it on repeat while painting, writing, dancing furiously and shape shift into the animal you already have in you.

Killin' It 083: Becoming Medusa At Local Project

 "Did I escape, I wonder?

My mind winds to you

Old barnacled umbilicus, Atlantic cable, 

Keeping itself, it seems, in a state of miraculous

repair." - Sylvia Plath, Medusa

 "She didn't deserve it." I thought as I filled the bathtub with chlorophyll and lemon balm. In the language of flowers and herbs, lemon balm says "Don't misuse me." I was thinking about Medusa.  Whether she had bragged about her beauty or if there was a rivalry between her and Athena, Medusa didn't deserve it. She didn't deserve to be raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple and she didn't deserve the wrath of Athena afterward. I dropped the plastic snakes into the water.

I was making a swamp. I needed to. I needed to be grounded and cleansed at the same time. To do this I had to become Medusa. I wrapped snakes in my hair and pinned the rest up, I applied makeup like a mask. "What if Medusa kept her beauty? What if Medusa was only hideous when the snakes awoke? These thoughts ran through my head as I tilted my head and arched. I've always thought of Medusa's hair as protection. The snakes lay dormant until danger was near, thus awaking them and her hideous scream turning those who wished to harm her to stone. I stepped into the water and emerged.

Medusa: "Her only crime was being beautiful" can be seen from July 6-20 at Local Project for the "Turned On" exhibit. Opening reception July 6th 6-10pm. Closing reception July 20 6-10 p.m. 

Local Project 45-10 David St. Long Island City. Right Near 5 Pointz

Pimp My Artwork 079: Madame Zuzu's Envelope Art

My love affair with Madame Zuzu's started back in March. I was in Chicago on a special trip to meet my rep, meet old friends and new friends, shake hands, and teach a class on tarot. Chicago is a special city, filled with history and magic. Each section has it's own unique spirit, each building a story to tell. Recently Zuzu's had a call for mail art. The teahouse used to be a post office and so it seemed appropriate that they would pay homage to the space that came before them.  I found out about it late night before a dinner engagement with Lauren Cerand. We were both in another magic city, New Orleans. I quickly wrote them a message. "I'm so sorry I missed this!" and soon a reply, "Send it anyway we're making a book." and so it began.

I wanted to create a piece that would fit in the with essense of the shop itself. The had asked for either Paris 1930's or Shanghai. Dying to do some simple like work I chose Paris 1930's and began to work magic on that plain number 11 envelope.

I started with negative space and quick groupings of color. I wanted to keep it simple. Black, red, white, and yellow with line work in between. As I added in bits of color and sipped my Vintage Caramel Dream.

And it started to come together, so lovely, so right. I found some vintage stamps from Paris online and printed them for the top.

A few days after I took a trip to City Island I finished the piece and snapped a shot. I sent them a messgae. "I'm sending you a package. It contains something beautiful and something magic." In the package I enclosed 2 keys tied together with red string. Red is considered a lucky color. I tied one of the coins from my hair on to them and wrapped it carefully. I kissed it and blew on it three times. The package is now on it's way. Latcho Drom.

Paramicha 07: Pinhole Storytelling

Paramicha is storytelling, a bit of folklore. It's told by campfires, music playing and strong cups of coffee and tea. Originally this category started out as playlists. The soundtracks to my work, but as time went on that shifted. I started making video diaries, tiny glimpses into my real life world and what catches my eye. So I share with you my little unearthed treasures that I call Pinhole Storytelling.

I've always loved the pinhole camera. It captured something other cameras couldn't. Moments in life that go by unnoticed. A pinhole photograph is looking at a series of moments in time  lapsed and captured into one image. I capture small portions of my day, my travels, moods, and magic and splice them together to create a long moving image. A pinhole outlook in a very broad world. I created a youtube channel if you'd like to travel down the path and into my thoughts. You can find it here.

 

I'm inspired by memory, the way the brain remembers them and twists times. I've always said memory has a distinct taste. Kind of like red but softer.
