Giving through Art

December 7, 2017


With the encouragement of a dear friend, I recently submitted a piece to Postcards From the Edge show in NYC.  Well-known artists and upcoming artists alike, submit postcard size pieces of art for auction in order to raise money for AIDS awareness and enable Visual Aids to produce AIDS-focused contemporary art programs, provide supplies, & assist artists living with HIV/AIDS.  


Hopefully my submission of Soul continues to support such an positive organization.  
Since my art begins with an encounter with a discarded object.  It seemed fitting that it was a mannequin that I used.  Just an inanimate object, made to resemble a human therefore conveying something else, something more.  By thinking about the forgotten past of the discarded object, I question the habits of our throwaway culture and examine the idea of an object becoming worthless due to changing fashion, technological progress, and just through the passage of time.


I use the found object as a tool to create a new version of itself, in this case a cyanotype photogram.  The end result is that the altered object has a new spirit and leaves an imprint of its existence.  


Give however you can.  Give your time.  Give through art.  Or at least, smile at a stranger.  ;)
