K8 Hardy

"My jeans are dirty. The special black jeans from Trash & Vaudeville where the punks have been making the same cut of jeans since the real deal. The ass has ripped so many times, just came back from the tailor at the dry cleaners, and I feel like I am walking around with a diaper on. It’s weird but my ass still looks good in them. I wish I could afford new clothes. Some avant-garde designer with the freakiest weird shit, who knows if they even sell it to stores even.
I still believe in the male gaze. Seems like everyone has given up on that.
Different ideas. I’d like to dress up as each of my friends and take their portrait, a portrait of me, an homage. Maybe I’ll do it but I wonder if it’s worth it.
The underwear were merely a symbol for the body. The location of the most disgusting form of abjection. I chose the underwear for the location. I buy used underwear. Everyone says they don’t do it. I mean, I check the crotch and make sure it’s not stained, and only if they are like really cool or interesting. And of course I wash them before I wear them. A friend lost my favorite pair of crotch-less panties while performing in the Miss L.E.S. Pageant. Can’t blame her for that. I got them from a Saver’s in Springfield. Now used crotch- less panties no worries. They were low-cut, black lace, from the 70s."-K8 Hardy

Before I began to post here, I had made a list of artist I was interested in showing but that's not what it turned out to be once I started, for the most part at least. One artist led me to the next and so on. I guess thats what blogging is... This has been an amazing experience, hope you enjoyed these amazing works by amazing artists.

Sascha Braunig

Sascha Braunig combines vibrant color and an hypnotic style in works that reflect upon illusion and the surface of the image. In dream-like scenes where repetition and patterning are foregrounded, Braunig's female subjects emit an extrasensory glow. Flaring with reflected color, they are iridescent beings whose very skin seems to be a source of psychic power.

Niall McClelland

"With folded photocopies, old bed-sheets, fragile newsprint, and other basic materials, Niall McClelland makes compelling works that radiate a sense of formal elegance with arte povera-like zeal and a little bit of the sneering contrariness born of punk music."
- Clint Roenisch

During a few attempts to collaborate with friend and artist Lee Maida, we discussed the possibility of making objects or "wearable sculptures" using textiles and earth color schemes. The collaboration never happened but my interest in using these colors such as mustard, gold, greys, blues and greens continued so I began to make drawings. In these drawings, I was also interested in overlaying patterns and how lines took form.

Quilt Trails

Hi everyone, I'm super excited to be this week's guest blogger. The following images made me want to go on a road trip. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. I am also adding a few links where you can find some interesting "quilt trails" across rural America.

The quilt trails are part of a growing phenomenon that has swept across rural America involving 29 states and two Canadian provinces. The concept began a decade ago by one Donna Sue Groves, paying tribute to her mother, a fifth-generation quilter, by painting a quilt square pattern on the family’s farm in Manchester, Ohio. According to a quilt trail website, it is estimated that more than 3,000 barns are adorned with quilt patterns. McDowell Quilt Trail is continuing this tradition as a tribute to our Appalachian heritage.

The farm in which the Log Cabin pattern is displayed is the Eden Shale Research Farm for the University of Kentucky. This pattern was chosen by Mrs. Bessie Hawkins, widow of O.D. Hawkins, the first farm manager and Barbara Wyles, wife of Joe Wyles, second farm manager.

Quilter: Donna Sue
Location: Old St Rt 32 Peebles, OH

Grandmother's Flower Garden
Quilter: Essie Merck
Location: 738 Old Seneca Road, Central

Essie Merck once lived on the property where this block is displayed. For generations, this site was the original Six Mile Community Post Office and farm of the Merck family. The current owner of the property, Cindy Blair, chose the pattern to honor Essie, but changed the original colors. The pattern reminds her of the old Granny Square afghans her great-grandmother, Minnie Gokey, crocheted in colorful florals with a black background.

"A Quilt Trail is a series of painted wood or metal, hung or free standing, quilt squares installed at various locations along a route, emphasizing significant architecture and/or aesthetic landscapes. Currently North America has quilt trails in 27 of the United States as well as in several Canadian provinces, such a British Columbia."
