I hope you are all having a wonderful new year so far. As for me, I am struggling to regain my strength and my voice, as I feel very disheartened by the recent anti-science and pro-wall sentiments that seem to surround me. My choice now is to join with others that wish to see a brighter future, not one driven by the repeal of the Affordable Care Act. I cannot help but to make art and writing that is influenced by this particular moment in history. To that end, I will be sharing my new works next month as funded by my grant from the Artist Foundation of San Antonio. The reception will take place on February 11 from 7-10pm at Studio 111 at 111 Lone Star Boulevard in San Antonio. My exhibition, titled "At An Angle," looks at the everyday pain and disturbance of the world from a different perspective. My goal with this show is to shine light on suffering, and to create small monuments to the moments that we let pass, with no record of their existence.
I will create a mountain out of a molehill, because the molehill is the every day, the ignored, and the forgotten.
