Hey, Friends!

Fun news!

In association with The Dog Show and featuring the melodic music of The Landers Sisters, Linda Lay and I will present our second annual joint art extravaganza: Wrestling & The Roundabout!

When: December 14th

Time: Doors open at 11 am! Work will also be on view all day as we celebrate The Echo Park Community Parade!

Opening Reception, Drinks & Music: 7 pm – 10 pm!

In Wrestling, Linda Lay’s most recent body of paintings, the core of reality TV and current Internet culture is explored. The WWE is shamelessly gaudy, tacky and the embodiment of the reptilian brain: primitive emotions dressed up in sweat and fluorescent colored spandex. From The Rock to Hulk Hogan, Lay playfully examines these images in order to understand her own pop cultural impulses and attractions to monsters, as wrestlers are like monsters.

In The Roundabout, I investigate social rituals, public presence, and the story of us. For the month of November, instead of waking up and logging onto Facebook, I sat at the roundabout in the middle of my neighborhood, writing analog status updates on my typewriter from 8 am – 9 am. There, I engaged with my neighbors, reported on findings/conversations/feelings, and mailed them off via the traditional post. Here, I will present a few special “lost updates” from my collection, collaged into commemorative art pieces.

I tried to say Stacy Elaine Dacheux instead of I— but felt like a dummy doing that on my own blog.

So, ok!
Hope to see you there!!!
