she thinks she can warn the stars

'she thinks she can warn the stars' is the new title of my show of new paintings i've been bleeding all over lately. . .
it opens on good friday here in philly at the lovely topstitch boutique and features portraits of women based on the poem 'the black art' by anne sexton as well as my over infatuation with joan of arc. what i've been thinking about is the female as a complicated vessel, she is at once on the brink of madness while at the same time a bloody warrior. she has visions from 'god' but can't get out of bed to go food shopping. she is psychically in tune but can't foresee her own doom.

opening night will also be a special bloodmilk trunk show where i'll be unveiling a lot of the new jewels i've been working on, including all the teeth and claws i've cast recently. i'll be posting sneaks of these on my etsy shop, as i did with my sparrow claw rosary pieces, but the full line won't be available until after the trunk show.
happy beautiful weather east coasters.
PS a huge thank you to the highly talented paul romano for the card design.
i'm so lucky to have such an amazing group of talented friends.
