the ai weiwei exhibit at the
was beyond my expectations. the founders of the
foundation, brothers and owners of guess jeans
have converted an iconic los angeles building to offer
rotating contemporary art at no fee to the guests. these photos
do not do the art justice but I thought it worthwhile
to give those of you who cannot experience the in person
extravaganza a peek. the sculptures are created from thin
bamboo, intricately designed, some wrapped in silk. an astonishing
part of the exhibit are the shadows cast from the sculptures. at first glance
I thought they were drawings on the wall but soon realized that
it was cast shadows. the last image of stools shows this well.
also at the marciano foundation is a room created
by yayoi kusama. standing among her red polka dots
after recently seeing infinity a documentary of her life
here, for a little contrast from the magnificentart,
are humble potato stamps I made.
I admire caren ginsberg's portraits and was fortunate
enough to attend her workshop.
these are my works in progress
and have been participating in a 15 minute a day art journal
challenge which I post on instagram. this is made from
handmade stencils and collage.

To my PPF friends, I want to mention that I have been posting
comments on various blogs but when I press publish, the comment
disappears on the google sites even though I have signed in.
I don't want to seem rude by not returning your visit to you blogs
after you have taken the time to visit and comment here. hopefully,
I will resolve this soon. Thank you for understanding.
