Don't Miss: Platupus Gallery, Medusa Bloom, Opening Reception Oct 17th, 2009

by Robin Schroeder 24. September 2009 21:35
Medusa Bloom, an Environmental Art Project in Plastic Bags
Opening Reception: Oct. 17th, 2009 at 3pm

Artist Bio
I’m a compulsive-obsessive artist. I dabble in bronze work, blown glass, oil painting, pencil work, clay, and jewelry. I drown in fiber, graphic design, acrylic paints, flour and frosting.
I’m a girly feminist with…
…an affinity towards dangerous female deities.
…a curiosity for the unknown.
…a facination towards bugs with communistic social systems.
…and a propensity for migraines. I have a passion for always learning something new. I love to create paintings of giant anthropomorphic ants with colors straight from the tube. I craft kaliedoscopes with hand blown ampules. I knit artsy shawls and scarves out of unusual fibers. Plus a regular spattering or smack, if you will, of what ever obsession I must get out of my system at any given time. My current projects include stained glass jewelry, repurposed messenger bags, an exploration of the renaissance snood, virtual cakes, and my big long term project: the Medusa Bloom Project, a socio-environmental study expressed through sculptures of Jellyfish. My art has been shown in galleries throughout Southern California.

Lost Congregation and others by Liz Dorn

by Robin Schroeder 3. September 2009 19:18
Local artist, Liz Dorn enjoys painting old houses and buildings with the look of a bygone era.
In the artists own words:
"Show me an old building with peeling paint, lots of texture, brick and stone walls that are falling down, and this is visual poetry to me. I also enjoy painting doorways, arches, and arcades. I completed a Brooklyn Doorway series of five water color paintings. I have used the urban decay theme in some of my paintings and would like to do many more. Realistically, this is what is happening to our large inner cities. What was once grand and beautiful has been neglected and no-one has the means for restoration. The recession has taken away the funds for historic preservation and unless neighborhood grass roots organizations recruit volunteers, a lot of these old structures will be gone forever."
