Effervescent Epiphanies

The sparkling contemplations of a erratic and procrastinating mind.

paper marbling

fill a tray with water. blow, fan, stir, dab, and drag paint or colored ink across its surface. put a sheet of washi paper on top to stain it with the floating art.

though called “turkish” paper marbling by europeans, this design technique was developed in east asia, central asia, and the islamic world. it is an important part of turkic, tajik, indian, and other asian and middle eastern cultures.

Soffreh Meaning Tablecloth - Iranian Artist Gita Meh

Soffreh” means tablecloth in Farsi language. It is a ritual drawn from my memory and my personal history. This performance is a food offering made by women for women, only.

An interactive piece. Women cook and paint on specific dishes prior to the performance. Ceremony turns to consumption of painted foods. In this installation-performance one practices a kind of independence, liberation from the public within the space of the gallery.

A 11 feet in diameter tablecloth is poured out of 300 pounds of sugar on the ground in a circular shape. Prayer carpets in various colors are placed around the sugar-tablecloth. On each prayer rug a folded veil is placed as the audience experiences wearing a chadoor while trying to serve food, eat and communicate.

This work is drawn from my personal relationship to friendship. Soffreh becomes a prayer place, a dance place, a home place, it becomes belonging. It reflects the architecture of my past in a personal context. I investigate issues such as place, space, pleasure and identity. - Gita Meh

This makes a lot more sense and is objectively better than The Dinner Party by Judy Chicago.

Chicago-based Stacee Kalmanovsky’s Rain installation is perfectly placed below a skylight, showing the beauty of glass droplets that really look like rain. Looking up at it in person is an experiment in vision and perception.

by Yayoi Kusama


What’s Modern here? I don’t see it.

Van Gogh, Cezanne, these other ghosts, all are dead or dying.

While the dead show dead art, living artists die.

Fame and reputations are sold across the counter.

Here art, hard as diamonds, prevails over love;

Diamonds for grand dames attending their funeral.

MOMA is political, a show place for vanity.

Politics has no place in love and in art.

No life stirs in empty rooms where DON’T TOUCH is the rule.

Exhibitions should be free and not a dollar fifty.

Art should be priced for all to own—at the supermarket.

Soft sculpture is alive, always preferable to hard sculpture.

My love is like mixed media, mixing you and me.
