Just re creating the beautiful photography of Man Ray.
Thank you to everyone who came down to our dada inspired life drawing class last night!
The next class will be focusing on perspective and mirrors for distortion, Tuesday the 27th 7-9pm at 10a Hicks Street Kelham Island 🧡
Obviously I share a lot of other artists’ work here, because #enthusiasm and #dadaism make #strangebedfellows .
It’s also occurring to me that there could be an interesting #metaphor in #interdimensional#perception here on IG - the difference in perspective between seeing a page as a random smattering of posts in a linear feed as #akin to (x) Dimensional perspective, and viewing that same page in grid form as a (x+1) dimensional perspective.
Usually when I repost images or artwork, I’ll process them so my #weird eyes can see them, so there’s always a #remix going on somewhere. And I try to make sure the original artist is fully credited and referenced, because I love their work and want them to #thrive .
I’m really enjoying IG as a #Dadaist#mediasphere and glad for all of you following and feeding the journey. M

Yesterday I shared a bit of where I've been at and why I'm taking the steps I am. I appreciate the feedback and the support.
I think the age old story of 'fake it til you make it' can be rather toxic. I think it's especially toxic for men. While women are shown one particular ideal of beauty and success, men are shown - in movies, ads, and more - ideals of what a 'successful' man looks and acts like. The nice watch or shoes. Take the lady out. Buy her the nice thing. Be the king of the castle. We take on those imprints and believe we should be that - or risk chastisement, alienating possible fans/investors, etc. We're told to wear this mask because no one wants to hear your (supposed) sob story. In fact, in those times, most people expect you to go quietly til you have something great to share. Sometimes, sure, the confidence is real and palpable. Things are going well! But other times, try as we might, they just fall apart. Man up! the world says. ::
I don't believe that's the best approach. Roll up the sleeves, sure. Work hard. But the mask - the 'fake it til you make it' - it wears thin. The older I get the less energy I have for that. ::
My art, my work, has always been about stripping layers of conditioning away and being as real with it as possible. That mission has always shift
