post election wrap up

"No, I think less of you because you watched an adult mock a disabled person while addressing a crowd and still supported him. I think less of you because you saw a candidate spout clear racism day after day and still backed him. I think less of you because you heard him advocate for war crimes and still thought he should be given the reins of government. I think less of you because you watched him equate a woman's worth to where she landed on a scale of 1 to 10 and still got on board. I think less of you because you stood by silently while he labeled Mexicans as criminals and Muslims as terrorists.
"It wasn't your politics I found repulsive. No, it was your willingness to support someone who spouts racism, sexism, and cruelty almost every time he opens his mouth. You sided with a bully when it should have mattered most, and that is something I will never be able to forget.
"So in response to your post-election expression of hope, no, you and I won't be 'coming together to move forward.' Obviously, the president-elect disgusts me; but it is the fact that he doesn't disgust you that will stick with me long after the election." ~Phil Shailer, Hollywood

Who's More Important?

Rembrandt, or the people who bought his work?

VanGogh or the rich idiots who failed to buy his work?

An Artist who has a lot of integrity about their work is one to be watched, rather than one intent in making a reputation overnight.

inˈteɡrədē/- the quality of being honest, the state of being whole and undivided.

Los Angeles

LACE presents a retrospective of all Gallery Tally posters created to date – including over 400 original, artist-designed posters that visualize gender ratios in the contemporary art world. Since 2013, Gallery Tally has collected and visualized data pertaining to the radical underrepresentation of women in all facets of the art world and beyond.
Women are underrepresented in the art world, but how bad is it, really?
Why is there still such an imbalance between the role and support of men and women in the art world? Why is the art of female-identified artists still valued so much less than that by male-identified artists?
Using the power of the community, and the passionate vision of hundreds of artists, Gallery Tally seeks to address these questions and more.

Drawing everyday

A constant flow of new work. More added everyday.
The eternal beauty of the human figure.
An affordable investment.

Part of the National Queer Arts Festival

I'll be displaying several works of art and giving out free stickers, thanks to the Queer Cultural Center.

Each year, QCC organizes a large-scale month-long exhibition of cutting-edge queer art at SomArts Cultural Center Gallery in San Francisco that serves as the National Queer Arts Festival’s kick-off event. This annual exhibition is the largest and oldest forum for queer visual art in the U.S. For the past 17 years, the exhibition has featured 30 to 60 emerging and mid-career Queer artists’ work. These works are documented on QCC website, which provides a visual history of queer art making in the U.S. and provides curators and activists with a valuable resource for contemporary queer visual culture.

The exhibition will explore the idea of physical, social, political, affective and historical connections. For those who have been denied acceptance into existing social models and access to traditional political means, or for those who voluntarily reject these structures, queers have created alternative social connections as sites of political transformation or contestation.

Historically, LGBTQ people have made connections with each other across racial, geographic, gender, ability, age, class and cultural borders. These connections have built a strong LGBT community, generated new concepts of queer families, developed innovative health and social service models and made long lasting alliances with other disenfranchised communities and social change movements – interweaving social justice issues into our daily lives.

For the past 40 years LGBT people have constantly forged new ways to connect within and outside of our perceived communities: body-building magazines, lesbian pulp fiction, want ads in straight publications and other 1960s practices gave way to gay newspapers, bars, sex clubs, churches and political organizations in the 1970s. In the 1990s the increasing use of digital technology proliferated the ways LGBT people could communicate and connect. With this rise of technology, we are called upon to respond to a new and increasingly rapid proliferation of political and visual culture and an array of urgent social issues that this technology makes increasingly visible.
