Robert Wilson

A very happy lady came into the gallery today, in love with Roark's works, as always. The best part, however was her introduction of the artist Robert Wilson, who films animals, celebrities and everyday people in what seem like stagnant poses, and displays them on enormous plasma screens. The poses seem stagnant, until you lay your eyes on the screen for longer than a minute and notice that there is movement.

So, Joe Biden eh?
Rum and old friends mixed with new memories made for a healthy morning today.
How early does arthritis start?

frying under the fluorescence

I have an addiction to Tic Tacs. The white ones only. They are intended to freshen your breath, but I can't make a pack last longer than a day.
I love Nicholas Gurewitch  His comic strip genius is on the level of arrested development's.
The love affair between Ronald and Nancy Reagan makes me jealous. I've never seen more adoring affection between 2 individuals. Just read one of the countless love letters you wrote to Nancy. I highly recommend visiting the Reagan library in Simi Valley.

Fair entries

I went to the fairgrounds today to retrieve my various entries from the fair. As always, I was greeted by the fairgrounds staff with absolutely no signs telling me where to go. It was so much fun trying to figure it out on my own with crazy carnies disassembling their rickety rides.
Alas, I found the buildings and now have everything again.

I've posted one of my necklaces on etsy, it is perhaps one of my most favorite ones. I hand drew and watercolor painted the rose and painstakingly embroidered the entire front. Someone please buy it so I won't be tempted to make another one as intricate!

My pieces have a certain literal value: often revealed by the text or the funky and sometimes controversial imagery. However, the combination of said images with text, I arrange them in a way that affords the viewer his or her own consideration. I enjoy satire, sarcasm, cynicism, and ambiguity. I despise ignorance. I think any book published before the mid-80s is fair game for my art.
