Psychologically There

I've been away from my blog because I've been painting a piece for our collective's upcoming show, "Psychologically There".
I should introduce our collective, Surreyalists. We are a collection of Kwantlen Fine Arts students based in Surrey BC. Our first show is coming up on June 3.   Come to our opening if you're in Vancouver, BC. Enjoy the art, food and conversation.

Beyond my little problems - Fukushima

A Facebook friend shared this video update on Fukushima. I am god smacked by what was said about the situation.

 Click here > Fukushima Update Here

"What sphinx of cement and aluminium bashed open their skulls and ate up their brains and imagination?

Moloch! Solitude! Filth! Ugliness! Ashcans and unobtainable dollars! Children screaming under the stairways! Boys sobbing in armies! Old men weeping in the parks!

Moloch! Moloch! Nightmare of Moloch! ..."

Allen Ginsberg, 1955

Lost in Domestic Chaos

It took three trips to move all my painting gear back home from the Cloverdale campus studio where I painted for fourteen weeks. It felt like an eviction. I'm not taking classes this semester due to financial limits so I was told I could not use the studio since I technically wasn't a student this semester. I would not be covered by insurance. I miss not going in everyday for 4 - 6 hours. My working momentum is broken. The domestic distractions are hard to ignore. I am lost in domestic space. I no longer have order where I can immediately start working. Sigh.
