kim family auction

EDIT :: OK folks - it's live again here's a link to the list of all the items. here's the rhino.... thanks everyone!

it starts tomorrow. have you gone to look at what will be up for bidding? i almost don't want to tell you because i want to bid on some of the stuff.... on the plus side - any bidding war will only go towards a good cause. a huge heartfelt thank you should be given to lisa, stephanie, and gerrie, for all the work and love that went into preparing this. i am grateful that this community strives to take care of it's own..... to do what we can when we can....

this is what i am auctioning, but there is SO MUCH good stuff.... so if you don't like my contribution you are bound to like something. get ready to sign into your ebay account.... ready :: set :: go :: bid!

mini target :: rhino

mini target :: rhino_detail

this little mini hunted rhino target is about 5.5" x 5.5" it's watercolor and pinholes on a vintage target.

this whole series was based on the idea that i wanted the hunted animals to "re-claim" what could potentially be detrimental to them. i wanted them to be in bright colors to counter our typical association of silhouettes [esp. ones that are in remembrance]. to me the pin holes also signify mending with out the mending capabilities [no thread]... so there's a balance between defiance and sadness.

all for now.... back soon !

I like the idea that animals could reclaim something back, their spaces, their lives, their clean habitats.
Unfortunately I'm too poor at the moment to bid for anything now. I wish all the luck on this auction. I'm sure this rhino will fetch a good deal.
love and a big cheer for communities that take care of their own.

thanks for reminding me! love your contribution and it's meaning. i like the controversial aspect of it, at first glance it's a bit shocking (like when i first saw your work) and then your explanation. i like that it wants you to talk about it and understand it.

(as always) I love to read the ideas behind your work...

Good luck with the bidding - I am exercising my ebay finger as I speak :)
julie said…
Oh i so love your work and ideas behind them...as well as the meaning, i love the strong graphic look together with the 'by hand' part...
unfortunately i too (like Paula) am a little on the tight side to help out in this worthy cause.
Good luck - i know it will go well.
