This week: haunting dreams, mountains of hair/prayers, and finishing Un tal Lucas by Julio Cortázar.
I think the winter is finally dying down a bit, which is both awesome and stressful. This is the last weekend of the festival I’m interning at, and the only thing I regret is not having been a bigger part of it (or at least not having taken enough pictures!). Maybe after that there will be much more of me to go around, but I have to do some serious work for my thesis and it’s seriously freaking me out.
Anyway, on my way out to hit the museum with Jeshee, and I’ll take my camera along for once. It’s a sunny day today, and quite possibly the only one this week, so take advantage of it I must!
L.A-based artist Allison Schulnik does it all, painting, drawing, sculpture, pottery, cooking (wonder what that’s like!), animation, dancing…I’m always fascinated with pluridisciplinary artists, especially the ones who bring life into each medium in very particular ways. Her work reminds me a lot of Belgian artist James Ensor with all the sad clowning and thick, pasty clumps of color, as well as Bruce Bickford the way that the shapes and forms of her characters seem to be constantly morphing and melting into each other. And since I’m a sucker for all things stop-motion and claynimation, I seriously urge everyone to check out her film work!
