THE BITTERSWEET SCHEMING

BITTERSWEET

There isn’t one true heart out there that’s not on a quest to bust the walls down.

I PAIR ME

THINK AGAIN

I spy again, or fly again, or I’m just me… again. Because I happened by these unknowable children of another, trapped and flattened in some manila folder with an inspirational label. The organizer me can forget her treasures when that beige has swallowed them away. But how alive they can become, even in their wilted 2D, when the moment that has me look is the moment I needed them. Those clippings that keep me from clipped wings. Like a personally curated Tarot, and a deck not random at all. A matching game, where one part of the pair, is me.

SAND FAMILY

SHORE LINES 4

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, but in between, we stand together on the shoreline. We laugh, we hold hands, we fall apart, we rebuild ourselves, and we call each other… family. Shot from my CLOSER SAN DIEGO Collection.

FROM FELT TO THE EVERLASTING

COWBOY SHERRY 4

Wearing the felt flower hair tie of a stashed high school dance costume, in my old studio. One of my first businesses in grade school actually involved felt magnet production… I would sell at my own table at the local fair. Santa Clauses and Christmas trees sporting pom-pom noses and bulbs steeped in miniature puddles of glue offering but a week of life. To learn what has lasting quality – well, that takes a lifetime. We switch to better and better glues as we get more and more of the clue… Until we learn that lasting MORE

JUST SAY IT

COMING OUT

To the orange bits inside us all, dying to be spoken, why wait… Quiet to our insides isn’t silence, it’s rock & roll. Meditation is. Just being with. So I’m letting my voice be the object of my devotion if just for a moment, today. It has never steered me to anywhere but my true home. “COMING OUT” from my CLOSER SAN DIEGO collection. #speakyourtruth #speakyourmind #haveavoice #sayit

YES WE CAN

YES WE CAN

Still from my commission… “The Rodrigo Box”. It’s about having courage in the face of family intolerance over your sexuality. It was made for a man who flows with compassion in a big way, that he might find – and truly enjoy – the partner he’s capable of loving. The partner he deserves.

PURPLE RAIN

LAFAYETTE NEON

You made it rain purple, inside my vision too… Right now, it is art itself that weeps the hardest. RIP Prince. You are what art always wanted to be.

ORANGE CHAIN

ORANGE CHAIN

In the sweltering heat of the Brooklyn subway, one summer in my early 20s, I was so taken by a pink sprayed wall across the tracks that I walked straight into a metal map encasement on the platform and broke my glasses! On my way to have them repaired, I spotted this chain. Always a silver lining… ORANGE CHAIN from my CLOSER NY collection.
