“So cheat your landlord if you can and must, but do not try to shortchange the Muse. It cannot be done. You can’t fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.” ~William Seward Burroughs





I recently concetpualized and hung an art show called "Value = Voice" at the Box Factory gallery in San Francisco, July 24th through August 8th, 2010.

Value = Voice

In this playfully edgy three woman post-post-modern show, we are examining themes of value & risk, and throw away objects & people. Each woman’s art works relate to their embodied experience of the socio-economic free-fall; the Recession/Depression.  As we share our individual voices (exploring unemployment, housing, and isolation) through female lenses and symbols of domesticity (implied body, sex, food, etc.) a chorus forms.  Choosing our own materials we are using both found objects (rusty metal and broken glass), and things which are precious (a lock of hair, personal photos, and rubies).  We invite the public to share in this exploration of private and public issues and join in the conversation as we examine the concept of value, risk opening ourselves, and create our own sense of value through our art.
