Update on our Krazy Fish Project

The painted booths. We had a lot of help painting, including from some random kids in the neighborhood. Duff had a lot of help building the the booths and bar.
The bar was a Christmas Elf House discarded and repurposed. Jem distressed the panels using waterdowned paint and spray bottle. Then painted a watery blue swirls on the bar surface.

been a while since I last posted...

It's been a while since I last posted. In case you missed it, the last article I wrote talked about "artists as parents." Ok, hint, hint. :)
I'm transitioning into this very exciting phase. I was overwhelmed at first, but slowly but surely, I'm....we're getting used to the idea and finding our visualizations syncing. My art partner, Duff, who is also my baby's father are battling with "should be like this", "should be like that", and maintaining the lives we enjoyed independently as well as together. What kind of background and setting are we going to create for the baby? Well, stick around and find out! Of course, I wanted to share my pregnancy photos.
This photo was taken in Pawley's Island, SC. We are still traveling together. Though the dream was to sail the seven seas, I think we will have to postpone that for now and just sail locally with friends and family.
I don't think we're going to cut out art from our lives. So here's what we did. We worked together on the ambience and art for the newly opened restaurant Krazy Fish in Georgetown, SC. But being pregnant, I refused to climbed a ladder to spray paint anything I couldn't reach. Duff is working on finishing the decor with a crew. So it might be a little while before I post finished pictures of the place. But here's some artwork that didn't require me to climb.
There's so much to share with you. But I better get back to the task of making our lives beautiful for the baby. There's so much to do. Thanks for keeping in touch!

Artist as Parents

QUICK MUSINGS: Having kids and dedicating one's life to art, Are they compatible? I've met some seriously art dedicated people who choose the making of art as their kids and validate their choice. When you think of a dedicated artist, do you think of them as parents? Or deranged parents? Or shouldn't be parents or..... ?

Marceau M, The Madhatter and The Mark Hotel

If you are into glitz and glam, you probably have heard of the The Mark Hotel. Five star hotel in Manhattan, place of residence by some of Hollywood's Finest Elite stars. Moi, myself and I, aren't so into following the trend of coolness, so sometimes I end up in five star places with the most eccentric crowd. The eccentric crowd on one particular spring day was this guy I picked up from the side of the street name Marceau M. Marceau M. looks like Moliere sans the french moustache. When he gets on a roll, he is unstoppable and ridiculously animated, you just want to throw rotten tomatoes at him. Nothing but rotten tomatoes is appropriate for Marceau, since he converses with highly educated jargon, combined with a certain senselessness and exquisitely refined taste that emulates aristocratic elitism to perfection. For some reason, he agreed to be my art performance partner (I suspected because he confessed that he wanted to convince me to perform "free love" on the streets with him. He saw Rubbishriot Unplugged as a way to finagle me into becoming a longterm art partner, with the hopes of getting thrown in jail performing overt acts of "free love".... ). Meanwhile we performed on top of Delacorte's Alice in Wonderland, me, as Alice performing tea time with the children, and Marceau coming to life as the madhatter screaming inanities about petroleum to a crowd of very displeased parents. Afterwards, I felt the need to use the restroom. He says, "you cannot possibly want to use the restroom in the Park! How degoutante!" So he leads me to the most exotic of five star hotels, The Mark Hotel. We walked in to this refined establishment as if we owned the place, and I believe he told the bellboy to hold his dog while he speaks to the manager about his nonexistent luggage. Shortly thereafter, while I was in the restroom, he gets into a verbal argument with the xtra-large hotel manager. When I returned, they were outside, with Marceau M being pushed out the door without physically being manhandled. So Marceau M, who is rather small, placed his head on this manager's chest to attempt to push him back inside. The hotel manager has absolutely no idea what to do because according to policy, in order to prevent a lawsuit one must not confront anyone physically. And so the manager says, "you don't know who I am!" and the Marceau goes: "well, you don't know who I am!" This scenario and line repetition went on for several minutes until they both noticed my presence. Then in a most ladylike manner, I said, "Excuse us please." The Hotel Manager says gallantly, "Mademoiselle, my apologies." And off we went, with Marceau sputtering about how rude some people are. I called Marceau M several weeks later and he tells me he was unable to join me for my other performances because unfortunately he was in jail... most likely, I suspect, on charges of public disturbance or disorderly conduct...I'm curious if he performed acts of "free love" by himself.

QUESTION: What is Aviary Realty About?

ARTIST: AVIARY REALTY is a continuation of our narrative from Homage to Wood. Naturally, when birds rescue our nymph from despair, we provide homes and care for our surviving avian friends. The idea behind Aviary Realty is to conceptualize and dream of an aviary townhouse, an avairy farm, an aviary district or an aviary city in digital form. To inspire a grownup, alternative version of playing with dollhouses. Rubbishriot Productions, in partnership with a Rubbishriot approved artisan can turn this particular nesting dream into reality.

ARTISAN: WTF ! I don't wanna build birdhouses!

ARTIST: He actually doesn't mean that. What he means is that considering his abilities, craftmanship and experience working with airplanes, boats, classic automobiles, architectural restoration, making birdhouses is a tad bit out of the ordinary.

ARTISAN: Yeah, like what she says. Just order your birdhouse from China!

ARTIST: He makes a rather excellent point. Most of the birdhouses are manufactured in China, which counteracts the generous act of providing housing to our avian friends when we recall the environmental and human rights abuse factor. We use materials that have come from the remains of century old houses and each Avian dream house have moss growing, random century old detail that makes the product truly unique. We will gladly translate your Avian dreams into reality as a collector's item.

ARTISAN TO THE ARTIST: Tell them it's expensive.

ARTIST: (Rolls her eyes)

(excerpts from the interview is circulated in the local art collective magazines)
