This past Thursday I collaborated with two very talented artists to create the installation you see below. As you probably know, I make mixed-media paintings on muslin, which I also (sometimes) combine to form spaces. For this “photo booth” at the DTLA art walk, I worked with Darren Sarkin – a lighting designer and visual artist, as well as Sarah Butler – a performance artist. The event was called I Art U DTLA and is organized by Renee Warren of Ren Gallery.
Ok – so the textile paintings are mine. Light sculptures by Darren Sarkin. Performer is Sarah Butler, and she also made that beautiful flower headpiece she’s wearing. The flowers were provided by generous donations from three local Trader Joe’s. Thank you to everyone who came, and please contact me if you want to be on my mailing list for future installations and shows. Enjoy the photos
