ta da...assemble.




So as I mentioned in the previous post I am wanting to work on some new stuff for an upcoming show and ta da I am delighted to announce that I will be having a Solo Show in August at The Assemble Gallery and Studio in Seattle.

I had contacted them to just introduce myself and my work and lucky me they loved it and invited me to have a solo show. Needless to say I am excited, as always, to have the opportunity to show my work all together. Especially in such a lovely space.

But since I had 3 solo shows last year most of my work has been shown plenty and the new sleepers series is for a 2012 solo show....so I want to make new work.
My thoughts are work all about the home- so instead of it being a portrait of people let it be a portrait of this moment in our life through images of our home.

Pieces I am thinking about are:
a grouping of embroideries of objects in our home, i.e. the fan by our bed, the kitchen sink by the window full of dishes, a baby swing, a pile of laundry...
and then a layered portrait of the literal space of our home, as well as some cool text pieces, and something sculptural has to happen just not sure what. What do you think???

I think that is a great idea... there is so much scope in the 'domestic'.

Can't wait to see what you'll make.
