"I communicate using objects as metaphors. From quilts and teapots, to sailors' valentines and cages, I am interested in the stories objects tell and how we elevate them into heirlooms. Filled with personal content and commentary about society, the hard work of relationships, and my experience as a mom, my work tells many stories. The work is autobiographical, and although objects are my vehicle, I think of them as self portraits as each series reflects the timely concerns of my life"

Kari Russell Pool elaborates more on her work in the youtube video below

There’s a haunting quality to Christina Bothwell’s enigmatic figures in glass, clay, and paint that is both provocative and comforting. They seem fragile, yet somehow resilient; their glassy transparency speaks to a certain vulnerability, while their ceramic portions attest to a kind of stoic permanence. Bothwell finds inspiration in her dreams, nature, and literature as well as the interesting things her children say and do. “I am always attempting to capture the nonlinear, that which I can’t really articulate,” she says. “Through my work I am creating safe places that are inherently fragile. I think I am trying to do that for myself, for my own psyche, through my work.”

In 2003, Kathleen Elliot began making a series of glass sculptures titled “Natural Botanicals” based on plant forms such as branches and leaves. In 2007, she began also producing “Imaginary Botanicals,” focusing on invented and hybrid species. These and other series including “Liberty” and “Offerings” are informed by her inquiries into reality and ethics, which she began in the context of her interest in alternative spiritual disciplines. Elliot participated in shamanic ceremonies and practices while studying Helen Schucman’s A Course in Miracles and has received instruction from spiritual leaders including Carlos Castaneda.

06/02/2020

“One of Renaissance painter Titian’s most exquisite and important works, Lady in White, is also one of the most mysterious paintings of all time. It remains unclear to this day as to whether the masterpiece was meant as a portrait paying homage to an individual—i.e. the artist’s daughter, wife, mistress, or a courtesan; or whether the painting was meant as a depiction of the embodiment of feminine grace and beauty.

More than half a millenia later, I chose to portray Australian Bundjalung activist Vanessa Turnbull Roberts, who, as an Indigenous youth was subject to similar ambiguities as that of the legacy of the mysterious Lady in White. She is part of the Stolen Generation of forced assimilation. Throughout much of the 20th century—first by law and then later due to the discrimination, prejudice, inequality, and other consequences of colonialization, hundreds of thousands of Aboriginal children were separated from their families. At age 11, Vanessa was forcibly removed from her father. She has since transformed her personal trauma into tireless advocacy work: she earned a degree in law, and defends Indigenous against forced adoption, racism, and the preponderance of mass incarceration and deaths in custody of people of color in Australia.

Like the Lady in White, I have portrayed Vanessa as an embodiment of luminous, bejeweled grace and beauty. Her attributes attest to her cultural heritage; the flag she bears is that of Aboriginal Australia. Like the Lady in White, she gazes directly at the viewer: her eyes asking the question she posed in a recent Guardian essay: “So tell me, are you the bystander or the person who stood beside? Come and rise.”

I've had the pleasure of interviewing artist Doug West a couple of times--once when I was writing about his present home town Todos Santos on the Baja peninsula and again for this article about his latest work. Doug is so enjoyable to interview and he does everything he can to support the process. He has a solo show coming up at Blue Rain Gallery in Santa Fe, NM--seeing these paintings up close and personal is an impressive experience, so stop in if you are in the neighborhood.
Best of luck at the LA Art Show next week! Have a blast--
Come to political artist Erin Curier's opening Friday night Sept. 14 at 5 pm at Blue Rain Gallery. See below
