step ten :: show new work

a bed dreams a blue doily dream

above is one of the pieces i shipped off to the levy gallery . technically the show opens tomorrow i guess. it's always sad to pack up and empty your studio... and then i feel bad not being able to help hang the show. i implicitly trust how they will put it together - but i sent them a mini doily installation and am hoping it's not too big of a pain in the neck for them to put up. [i ended up painting doilies on acetate - not as good as when i put them on the wall - but they will do].

if you are in, near, around albuquerque you should check out the show. it's up for a very long time - till april 7th. there's a closing reception which i'll attend then. i'll post a few more images of work in the show over the next few....

what else is new? i am up to my ears in grading. 2 long hard crits this week - but some fantastic work and effort by students. i'm working on a logo design... i have this other project that i can't talk about yet and... taxes. i've got to take care of taxes this weekend! and i have to take down i want sugar. it was fast, but sweet. bye bye cupcakes

if you are in NY - aurora and i are in a benefit show for the the artist network a really cool space in NY. there's a big pink rhino target there.... the proceeds from the sale go to help fund the space and their residency [which is incredibly cool]. you can read more about it on their site.

if you missed it.... a few days ago grace used some photos of my house as a sneak peak on d*... i've really been loving seeing everyone's spaces. one's like lisa c's where i've actually also been inside [it's better than the photos!]. k.c's house today is just as lovely as the items she posts about. alyson's house was also really cool.....

and finally - to make things full circle - bed to bed. did you know that wendy is doing a photography study - "a year of beds". of course i am in love with this idea... and so is eschu - who blogged about it. i just recently discovered eschu on flickr ... her photos are just stunning.

was it just me or did the week fly by? oh! if you want something to watch brianna gave me a CD comp a spell ago and it has this feist song that i can't hear enough of. watch the video for mushaboom .

happy weekend!

I loved seing your home on d*s, so full of character and warmth. I'm also a big fan of this art, beautiful colours and textures. I'm looking forward to seeing more images from the show.
lovely work.

I love your artwork, it's so unique and amazing. My friends are flying off to NY this weekend for a holiday (not fair!) I so wish I was there to see your shows. I blogged about mushboom before, love that song -it was used in an advert. Loving everyone's projects, will be compiling a list soon.

Listoria said...

oh, so much happens when you step out of the blogisphere for a month!

I love the piece with the bed and the doily print and well, it's just very cool! And funny this, I just found a bedspread of my mother's that exact shade of blue buried in my attic! And you know I think it has a similar print. Crazy.

Well, must catch up on your posts during my month absence!

(Oh, love "Mushaboom" - have you heard Lily Allen's "Smile"? Can't get that song out of my head and the video cracks me up - you can find it on youtube!)

amisha said...

oh lisa... this new work is amazing! i love the textures and the layers of transparency, the embroidery, the beds. love. the pieces are stunning.
and it was great to see your house on d*s! so exciting to see the interior spaces of artists, the lived experience of creativity.
and yes this week flew... i'm hoping the weekend will go sweet and slow. good luck with your grading! (i've lost e to it the last couple of weeks too... papers everywhere!)

cally said...

you know. of course, that I am in love with this piece.

i'd love to live in a world where I could have it in a frame and in the next frame have christine's painting she did for her grandma, the chandelier one. they'd be beautiful together.
