Art Exhibit: The Architecture of Devotion at the Gowanus Ballroom


Have you ever gone to the Gowanus Ballroom? It's this amazing warehouse on the Gowanus Canal. It's a welding studio that is turned into a exhibition space every few months. The first time I stepped foot in the building I was overtaken by how beautiful it was.

I'm kind of in shock to be showing art in such an interesting space. If you are in the area, you should come stop by! I'd love to see you.

June 24th
8pm - 2am
55 9th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11215


What is the architecture of devotion?
How does a particular space and the objects within transcend the physical, gracing the souls of some, while leaving others unmoved? Do we choose to experience, or is it inspired?

This exhibition will contrast themes of devotion, ritual, and sacred places, with the mundane, routine, and temporal nature of the spaces we inhabit and the objects within. Artists are encouraged to interrogate the cavernous, cathedral-like space of the Gowanus Ballroom, to challenge our shared understanding of temporal spirituality, and to explore the confounding nearness between the sacred and profane.

And the innocence














Evil innocence and nature


This is an art board I have been trying to work out in my head for a while now. Attempting to conceptualize the relationship between evil, innocence and nature.



















lightbulbs go off in my head all the time.

I should be collecting alphabets and drawing more words and more letters. Maybe numbers even. After all that is what I have made the basis of my work lately. I love the simple form and meaning of letters, and how arranged in different ways letters can spell out a word that isn't so simple anymore, but meaningful.

McQueen - Savage Beauty


On Fashion's Night out Sherry and I ran to the Mcqueen boutique and marveled at the craftsmanship of all the clothing. Oh, and the texture. We looved the texture. Then, Sherry couldn't take it anymore and bought a skull clutch. Let me point out we were looking at the ready made clothes. What is going to happen when we see get together to see the couture clothing?


The exhibition called Savage Beauty runs May 4th to July 31st 2011.

More than 100 pieces will be shown during McQueen's 19 year career





And to save the best for last. This one is my favorite because it reminds me of a vintage wedding dress, so isn't it ironic it's called Widows of Culloden?
