It’s been a while. I’ve been busy adapting to this cluster f*ck we call the “new normal.” Now that we are finally getting back to some assemblage of what we knew, I am continuing to make are and getting it out there into the world.

In the meantime, I’ve moved on from the bowels of Karpland to such topics of extinction, duplication and female occupations that are underrepresented. It’s interesting that the point of which I jumped off was a gender bending topic, which has now become very much a part of our reality. I’m referring to transgender. If Hans and Claire had been born in the early part of the 21st century, they would definitely transgendered. Just goes to prove that timing is everything.

Extinction to Duplication

Extinction to Duplication: For Posterity’s sake

The problems of this world are only truly solved in two ways: by extinction and duplication.

-Susan Sontag

Extinction to Duplication addresses how we will remember what will be lost through duplicating their images using toys, carousels and fabrications. The images at times may appear playful, but at times are cryptic in their message. To help explain this further, I chose women from an obscure part of history, cowgirls.

Nan Jeanne Aspinwall (February 2, 1880 in New York – October 24, 1964) was the first woman to ride on horseback across North America alone. She rode from San Francisco to New York from September 1, 1910 arriving on July 8, 1911[3] on a bet from Buffalo Bill, whose Wild West show she performed in. 

Mary Fields (circa 1832–1914), also known as Stagecoach Mary and Black Mary, was the first African-American female star route mail carrier in the United States. She was not an employee of the United States Post Office Department, which did not hire or employ mail carriers for star routes, but rather awarded star route contracts to persons who proposed the lowest qualified bids, and who, in accordance with the department’s application process, posted bonds and sureties to substantiate their ability to finance the route. She was a former slave.

Cowgirl Bar

Original sign read: Cowboy bar. I changed the title to acknowledge women as empowered rather than depict women as sex symbols, saloon prostitutes, etc.

It’s been a while since I blogged. So much physical and emotional recovery from the foot fiasco. As you know, it didn’t stop me from doing my artwork. As a matter of fact, I will be exhibiting the work in a two person show with artist extraordinaire, Andrea Mckenna at Eonta space here in Jersey City in February. I believe the weekend of Feb 7 is our target date. It’s going to be a great show.

Stay tuned…more to come!!

New Post

Hi everyone. Finally able to get into my blog again from Safari. Last year I was locked out and kept having to switch between servers. This makes life a lot easier. Also on the mends from my broken foot. More on that another time. Needless to say I’m not a big fan of the JC police. They didn’t handle this very well. But more on that another time. Going to a meeting this week where the community will meet with the precinct captain. We’ll see how that goes….

Above is a still from my new animation: Commit to Memory: The Precipice of Extinction. It consists of 6 poems by Nicelle Davis and Music by Marc Yu. We are currently working on a premiere venue so more on that later. It was funded by The Faculty Development Fund at Pratt. So far I am still on budget so that’s good. Working on the catalog and then an exhibition coming in February. That’s if all goes well.  Stay tuned for more….

Now that I have a bit less to do I’ll try to stay up on my blogging.

Again, stay tuned…life is always filled with annoyances and surprises. I’ll be kvetching about those as well.
