Great evening @brooklynmuseum with artist @robertlongo_ #RobertLongo discussing his latest works and curation/exhibition of #proofbkm Proof with wonderful work by #Goya & #Eisenstein for me it’s a strong and cohesive exhibition of artists concerned with the state of the world at their times. Black and White has never looked so good with evocative depictions of mass media and false idols. Longo, forthright gave us an insight into why his image making has to have an impact and hold a mirror up to ourselves and society. #MustSee #brooklynmuseum #artinfo #artnews #charcoal #drawing #iconic #artgram #rscarry #artgroupie #artactivism #neverlosethewonder

I woke up like this, flawless...and also with bed head, puffy eyes, gratitude, an overwhelming craving for blueberry waffles, the hope that we stop taking ourselves and our planet for granted, and the desire to be active in change. xx #morningmeditation #newyork #mettameditation #ahimsa #intersectionalfeminism #actor #writer #producer #humanity #kindness #artactivism #activism

It’s the morning of our last day in residence @leedsartgallery. It’s been great to have the downstairs gallery as our studio and collaborate with over 100 students. We’ve talked about our concerns in the media ranging from body image to Catalan Independence - voicing our opinions through posters and imagining alternative futures. We wish we could keep filling this space and use it as a hot bed for more action! #beuys #lee#leedsallery #leeds2023 #leeds #leedscitycentre #artactivism #socialactivism #politics #utopia

Egg Mother - Day 77 "Egg Mother" is my performance art piece symbolizing the amount of abuse and suffering experienced by female chickens in the egg industry. For the entire lifespan of a chicken, I will take time to create an egg out of clay every day, no matter the day, to mourn the female chickens who are unnaturally forced to lay one egg a day, putting a tremendous amount of strain on their bodies. For a female chicken, the average number of eggs laid (naturally) would be about 15 per year, and she would live to be about 8-10 years old. In the egg industry, female chickens are forced to lay an egg every day until their bodies give out from the exhaustion at 1-2 years, when they are then taken to slaughter for meat. By taking away the egg from underneath a chicken, she instinctually must produce another one, which becomes very hard on her body. The conditions egg-laying chickens live in are some of the most cruel in animal agriculture. The typical cage is so small that they don't have room to stand up, turn around, or groom themselves, which becomes very frustrating as they go against their natural instincts. The cages are stacked on top of each other so that the chickens relieve themselves onto each other, while still being unable to clean themselves. The eggs fall through the bars of the cages to be collected. Free-range and cage-free are no better because they are grouped in larger spaces with more chickens, where they must climb on top of each other with no real room to move. Some people believe that buying local or organic eggs from smaller farms or backyard chickens is humane, however the chicken is still being forced to produce an extreme and unnatural amount of eggs, thus putting unnecessary abuse on her body and shortening her life. Although this piece focuses on the life of female chickens, it should be noted that a frequent practice in the industry is the grinding up of male chicks alive in machines similar to wood chippers after they hatch. Because they don't lay eggs, it doesn't make much economical sense to keep the male chicks alive. Eggs (as well as all animal products) are unnecessary, unhealthy, replaceable, and never humane.

I don’t know if I’ve ever painted my emotions so accurately. (The following is basically stream of conscious psychobable about this painting) I tried to make this look beautiful... salvage it somehow from the mess it turned into, but overwhelming feelings of loss and pain took its form instead. I️ feel this crazy parallel between The North Dakota Access Pipeline spilling 200,000+ gallons of oil into the earth today and the pain women’s bodies have gone through for centuries. Power and patriarchal structures designed for the wealthy to keep dominion over the rest. Violence begets violence and the system remains seemingly unchanged. Small victories appear to be overshadowed in an instant. Finding the worth in all of it seems heavier today. And yet there exists this oppositional force maintaining its momentum somehow. . . . . #streamofconsciousness #art #contemporaryart #art#artistactivist #nodapl #surrealpainting #nud#nudeting #nude #figurestudy #figurepainting #acrylicpaint #acrylicpainting #painting #gestural #gesturalpainting #figuredrawing #figurativeart #figurativeartist #brushstrokes #artist #instaart #artofinstagram #cha#charcoaldrawing #charcoal #impressionism #artactivism #libra #inspiration #artinspiration #beautiful
