Working on something big with these tiny arms for the @deathsalon Boston. Psst...These are my favorite arms. Sneak peaks will be coming soon. ☠️
Death Salon Boston, Sept. 28-30th held at the incredibly beautiful @mountauburncemetery - this will be an unforgettable event. I attended Death Salon Philadelphia a couple of years back and left immensely inspired and educated. At the time, I was caring for a few ill family members. The Death Salon educated me on burial rights and the role a death doula. The conference provided me with the tools needed to care for my loved ones during the most difficult time in my life. 🖤
I had an art instructor who was taking advantage of his knowledge and position to “play” with his unknowing students creative/sexual energy. He had been projecting the female characters of a book he had written onto some of his students. The book was a love story/ triangle where he played the protagonist. He was using the opposing female characters in the book to set up women in his classes against each other. Having had spoken with some of his former students who had similar experiences with him, I new my experience wasn’t unique. I figured it out and started speaking up. He used his influence and the ambiguity of it to shame me out of the art department. He was a dream snatcher/ vision buster....but I haven’t let that nightmare of an experience ruin me. It was a bump in the road. This was the favorite piece from my last gallery show, where I opened up publicly about my experience. The saddest part is that nobody was really surprised by his behavior. Pretense and ego are in every industry. Know yourself and shine your light on them. If you’re light is too bright hand them a pair of shades 🕶 😎🕶😎🕶, walk tall and proud and know that you are not who they say you are.
She Who Stays Quiet Consents
mixed media on paper
Creeping around in people's energies without consent is evasive and wrong.....sensitive people are aware when this type of thing is happening, when lines are being crossed. Especially when teachers are taking advantage of their positions to do this without discussing it with their students first. It's dangerous and unethical. I DON'T CONSENT!
