STUCK IN  LA

Down Town Los Angeles - wooppeee....

Down Town Los Angeles – wooppeee….

I’m gonna travel in my own back yard …. UGH ….. I think they call that staycation – what a pathetic name about being hunkered down for 10 weeks with 2 self absorbed teenagers.

Australia was my first weeks where I viewed a ridiculously over done exhibit at the Sydney, MCA. What happens when  you don’t want to understand or care about what you see?
Why must I read the little notes on the wall to understand what the art is about?
Blah Blah …  and when does importing a huge dining room table and 4 assistants from overseas make the exhibition worth seeing?

Dinner table with no reference to Judy Chicago_ the only smart thing I could reference

Or is this art really a good investment. Wangechi Mutu…. ahhhhh …..  a quick Google search and I found out why – she was supported by Saatchi Gallery – think money!!
1st summer commitment – try and get seen by the International Art Festival curators.

Note the pictures above – I always appreciate good Art that really helps us understand the modern woman!
2nd commitment  this summer – exercise like mad, eat well, kegel exercises  and photograph my vagina …..

Gotta love the exclusive art world  - art for all?

Then there is the average art connoisseur ….  hmmm a bit white … don’t cha think?

Metro Blue Line LA

Metro Blue Line Los Angeles

Looking for life in Los Angeles  I caught the Metro Blue line to the  Moca Exhibit, cheap and efficient!! Great for a Voyeuristic traveler like me, what I don’t get is why was the only white on the train.  DAHHHHH …

Eating wheat thins on the train.

Sooo… stuff the Art world I am off camping …… 1 night, 1 disgusting toilet, (multiple buzzing flies caught on the tape attached to the wooden window and so whizzing out of the toilet when I opened the lid) and 1 damaged car $1600. (Gotta figure out how to pay for it on an artists wage?)

My summer of art is on the way to big things. After a dreadful visit from a local curator, I decided to redo my Chinese animations and pay $20 for a juried competition in Irvine, California

Who would have guessed I had a solo installation, ‘Thraxpat’  at the High Museum of Art, in Atlanta Georgia.

AHHH…… the art world is so fickle …….

HAPPY SUMMER!!!!!
