I am full steam ahead on a new body of paintings exploring the various roles, archetypes, ideals, and social experiments that teenage girls use to figure out who they are. My thoughts and ideas for this work are still coming out a mile a minute and have not yet gelled. I am making a lot of notes, doodles, sketches, and folders full of images to help me along. Mark your calendars: my new project will debut on 2014-04-04 at aka gallery in Oklahoma City.
I have started a Tumblr blog* to help organize some of the visual material informing this new work:
I'll be posting images on a new theme each week. Right now, it's Teen Witch "Week" for the rest of October (archived here). Here are a few selections to whet your appetite for seances, cute occult accessories, go-away lipstick, black lace, white lace, ectoplasm, crystals, and all manner of witchy vibes.
