two art shows this week

I'm in two fun group shows that open this Thursday night, March 10th.

One is the Warhol Reimagined show put on by Warholian, over at Project One Gallery.
We were each given a panel and different works of Andy Warhol's to choose from to 'reimagine. And some artists recreated his famous soup cans. I went for good ol' Jackie O.
here they are side by side.

 
and here she is with an instagram filter, which always makes everything look better.

The panel was gesso-ed when I got it and had a trickier relationship with the paint than I'm used to, but I made it work. I like challenges. I also like that we all painted on panels of the same size, it's going to look so neat-o all together. (Yeah I just said neat-o)
 And of course I couldn't help myself. Had to give her an extra eye, tattoos and a haircut. Oh and a lil nose ring. Kind of a self portrait? I guess?

The other opening is a collaborative photo exhibit with photographer Kelly Nicolaisen at 111 Minna. Me and a bunch of other artists did individual "light painting" collabs with Kelly, which was an entirely different medium than I'm used it. My shoot was kind of painful as it consisted of me being topless at the beach. At  night. In december. In san Francisco. I was only sliiiightly frozen. (Art is pain?) But I was really happy with how our picture came out. Shoots with her are always memorable. ha. I'm super excited to see the picture in person, as well as all the other artists' pieces.


I'll be gallery hopping, la la la! See you there :)
