Hello and happy Friday everyone! Here is the forth in the series of my monthly Creative Paperclay blog tutorials! I worked entirely out of my comfort zone this time with making a soft bodied doll! Head on over to their blog to see how this piece was made with Creative Paperclay®!
In the aftermath of the unspeakable event that occurred on November 9th, 2016, I found myself in a group show called “Uprise/ Angry Women”, responding to our new political climate. The show consisted of 80 women artists whose work was deeply involved in issues such as women’s rights, race, economics, and the future of this country. I normally don’t care for participating in shows with that many artists, but considering that it was created in response to a fear mongering, racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, homophobic, unpresidential, climate change denying, unqualified, uneducated, narcissist taking the highest office in the country, you’re damn skippy I was going to get involved. I decided to submit my piece “Women’s Troubles” which highlights the dual roles that women have to balance with working full time and being expected to be the caretaker at home. Unbeknownst to me, I would also be in a show, and an artist talk with Rose McGowan, she was pretty bad ass!
