For the last month I have been busy organizing yet another show. The Art Crawl Experience A.C.E. This time it has been on a much larger scale than any of the other shows that I have organized in the past like The Modern Tchotchkes and The Box Shop. Aside of my life which some people think I only make trinkets I do have a job. Divinding my time with my work at the salon and working as an educator on the side for Davines I have been busy in meetings and interviews and handpicking vendors. All along working in my studio. I am pretty excited about my recent pieces and have had some good feedback as well as got some commission work out from these recent pieces.
My recent trinkets have been heavily influenced by French new wave films that I have found myself watching lately. i.e.. Breathless, Band of Outsiders, Jules et Jim and my favorite non French film Harold and Maude. Using old vintage photographs of lovers and weddings and using old heart lockets. I still find myself inspired by the concept and ideals of love. I still find old photographs so interesting and sad. They are like little lost mementos that I am bringing back via the use of old watches...
The OC Weekly sponsored Art Crawl Experience A.C.E. will be featuring an art tour (self guided art tour) The tour starts at one end of the Downtown Anaheim Artist District and ends at The Muzeo.
