ReArtEco 2011 March 14 – 21
An annual exhibit held in Florence, Italy to showcase creative re-use of discarded or surplus resources.
Organized by a good group of dedicated people, great for networking work spaces and resources. Have made connections through the ReArteco facebook page (firstname.lastname@example.org), where most all posts are in Italian.
My two pieces this year consisted of an Icon for Toxic waste constructed from found objects. The second piece was a redo of my first year’s entry Bodonna which was lost in a move to Los Angeles. Bodonna II starts with a base print of Bodonna on canvas, framed in a shadow box and accented with relevant constructions honoring womanhood.
June 2011 Solo exhibit Eskimo Club, Florence, Italy
This show consisted of 16 pieces created over the last two years. A very interesting experience – negotiating the exhibit, installing the exhibit and the removing the exhibit with related storage issues.
