MOST RECENT

We are excited to introduce our new members! First up, KimyiBo (@kimyibo.art ) images taken from 'Kitchen Math'; a series of etching and aquatint on paper.
KimyiBo is an artist/mother, educator/artist, Korean/American/migrant living in Switzerland. These slash identities connect her with metaphysical themes such as tensions, transformation, multi-dimensionality, simultaneity, and migration. After having studied fine arts at University of Pennsylvania and printmaking at Seoul National University, she is currently researching different ways of existing as artists at Haute école d’art et design in Geneva. "Running parallel to the story of my becoming a mother is another birth story, in which I become awaken to the struggles of women.
Laboring through daily chores of raising a new born baby while maintaining an artist career has shown me that love and passion are not enough at times, and it is not even a matter of having a talent or not. There is clearly a social structure that makes easier for some to arrive at a desired place and more difficult for the others to do the same. I started questioning the shape of this structure.
What followed was a process of deconstruction on the notion of a successful artist and good art. Practical matters aside, this inner questioning resulted in self-distancing from the art world for three years. I stopped both participating in, and even visiting art exhibitions during this period. The only “artistic activity” in which I did not stop engaging was drawing with my children. I rarely made a “sketch” or a “study.” Drawing was a just a tool to do mothering.
When my children were coming out of the infant stage, I was able to have some time away from them and I started to draw again for myself. Then drawing was my coping mechanism.
This is not to say that art became less important to me after I became a mom but I now use it as a tool rather than a goal in itself. It is another way of relating to art as an artist. I must say that I am excited to find out what would come out of my new found interests in collaboration and pedagogy."

Not sure where I'm going, but I know where I've been

Things have been slowly picking up when I least expected it. And I find opportunities in the most unexpected places. Also, I have never really thought to use my art as a vehicle to voice out but post #pru14 (Malaysia’s General Election) I was spurred to make my art mean something to the masses, and not just to myself. We will see how it goes.

Detail shot of a 2016 work.

Creativity. This is one of several creative projects I was working on when I was pregnant with Nelson. In this particular photo I was 4 months pregnant. It was part of a performance photo series called “Parent Skins” and it explored the loss of self identity that people often face when they become parents. I would photograph myself doing everyday parenting activities while wearing a full-body suit that masked my identity. The playful series offered me a creative outlet within the throes of motherhood. This project, and this picture in particular, has taken on new meaning since Nelson died. Losing a child is losing a big part of yourself. It’s been a year and I’m still searching for who I am. Looking back on this photo, I had no idea what was to come. And yet the photo itself speaks volumes to the loneliness and isolation I have felt since Nelson died.
I yearn for creativity more than anything right now, but am still searching for the voice that I lost so unexpectedly when Nelson died.

This man is amazing! For the last few months Ive been organising #handcraftedpembrokeshire and for the last few weeks this has taken up a lot of my time and energy, the organising for the fair and making work for my stall. Rob has been a rock in the turbulent waters of my mind, being battered around and maybe smoothed around the edges in the process. He has brought coffee to the little caravan everyday, he has kept Matilda watered, fed and entertained in the best kind of way, he has driven me around the countryside postering, helped pick paints and kept the house running smoothly behind the scenes! Thank you so much!

Needed a little time to just do whatever. || Really enjoying experimenting with “opaque watercolors”. This is a cheap set but I’m thinking I might really want to invest in some good ones. Love how easily water is added or not depending on what you want. 🙌🏻 #gouachepaint #gouacheonpaper #watercolorvideo #artvideos #diyvideo #oddlysatisfyingvideo #mamamaker #creativemom #artistmother

Creating something wonderful... 💙
You might have noticed I’ve been quiet on Instagram lately. I’ve been a wee bit preoccupied! 👶🏼🤰🏼So happy to now be able to share with you all my husband and I are expecting our second baby in December this year ☺️
I’ve been pretty exhausted and sick this pregnancy, which has been frustrating for me as it’s meant I’ve managed to do very little art lately. The smells of the inks and alcohol don’t work well for my nausea! But I’ve got an exciting giveaway planned for the bank holiday weekend to thank you all for sticking with me while I’ve been so quiet! Keep an eye on my page for details which will be announced tomorrow 💙💙💙 #jennafergusonart

I'm thrilled to have two paintings selected for the Plein Air Artists
Colorado’s 22nd Annual National Juried Fine Art Exhibition and Sale. Only 165 of the 469 entries were juried into this show, and I am honored to have both "Good Morning Boulder" and "Aspen Mountain View" included. The exhibition, which will be held at the spectacular Sorrel Sky Gallery in Durango, CO, will feature some of PAAC’s most talented artists, and promises to be an exciting event. Thank you to everyone
at PAAC for the hard work you put into this show each year, and
congratulations to my fellow artists!

Indominious Rex in the “Peach Orchard” the life of a artist mom with boys. Although I loved dinosaurs as a kid 🦕 I sure learned to love them a lot more with my first little dude.

Loving this new guest #MomList from Charity Blansit in Barcelona. I also had #hypothyroidism in my last pregnancy and had to take a pill with lots of water every morning and wait those blasted 30 minutes before consuming food. Also Charity wrote this in her dream journal when she woke up. #MomLists in the morning! Follow her IG @somanyprojects .

More memories and more wonderful #artists. Today we present you @alanatysonart “My art is largely autobiographical and motherhood has already had a huge impact on my practice. While artist is residence at Ruthin Craft Centre last year I started making a new body of work which dealt with my feelings regarding infertility and going through IVF. Making the crochet and concrete forms allowed me to deal with the stresses of the situation and communicate them with others. Now with my baby barely a month old I look forward to seeing how her presence manifests in my practice in the future “ more on

Evening all from such a bright sunshiny Leeds, got to say this two week stint of sensational weather has really lifted my spirits. Here in the North of England it’s pretty unheard of, so we’re relishing every minute of it. No collars turned up to protect us from the wind, winter wear banished into cupboards a feeling of optimism, the birds are elated , singing Spring songs after a tough never ending winter. My #flowerbomber #painting looks extra dramatic in the evening light, light and darkness collide in a frenzy of chaos and order ( my favourite themes) sending big smiles to my #instafamily .....................,,,,,,...,,,,,,,,;,,,,,,,.,:;/-:;,,;:/:,;:/:,:/;;((;::,,,;;::;(,:/:;; #contemporaryart #flowerart #abstraction meets #order meets #shapes meets my #imagination #kunst #lightanddark #myhousethismonth #styleithappy #artistsoninstagram #womanatwork #feminist #artistmother #maker #lover #woman #carer #kindness #equality

InCrowd project completed per client’s request - next step is framing. Rest of the series will follow AFTER this fun TEXT project!
.

I’ll only be showing little bits and pieces of the sketches for the text project until the final is approved! (And probably a few side projects in between too). BUT, I’m very excited about this CHALLENGE! Plus, I get to learn all about mushrooms along the way!

Do you cook with mushrooms? Do you have a favorite?
