ART OF THE PROCESS!

1 Day of Art Miami was an Open Call put out by the wonderful Miami Art Scene

It intrigued me, and drew my interest immediately. I sent in my work for possible selection.   I was informed some days later that my work was selected for 1 Day of Art Miami and I was to meet the following week at a location to begin my art project!

(t)here magazine, a beautiful gallery exhibition book, travels the world once a year to a designated city and selects artists; photographers, painters, writers – artists of all media to participate in an undisclosed editorial assignment. What is so incredible is that (t)here magazine is dedicated to creating content that is neither edited nor editorialized by their team, it is a gallery exhibition book that provides a free flow of original artistic content from beginning to end. I was completely enrolled in this venture!

On June 14th we all met at this wonderful, cool, hip hotel in Miami. The editors and staff were so warm and welcoming – I immediately relaxed into this adventure! The artists that were selected began to come into the conference room where we were meeting; we all became fast friends. Each of the artists selected an envelope with the words that they were given to inspire their project. I opened my envelope and discovered that I had selected the world “conformity”.  My head started spinning with negative thoughts about this word, and I laughed at myself and stayed in the present. I knew as uncomfortable as I was feeling, I was there to create and the City of Miami was my subject! It was just as exciting as it was uncomfortable and I know that is when magic happens! Here below are some of the photographs that were taken in South Beach inspired by the word “conformity”.

WOMEN IN MEN’S SUITS, LADY LUCK FASHION SERIES
 
As I was spring cleaning in my studio, I was so happy to find these photographs that I shot for a Fashion Series in San Francisco. This series is still so timeless and relevant today.
