off it flew



to
a show
at
LittleBird gallery
in LA.

a show
called
off they flew
to benefit
(for restoration of)
the griffith park
bird santuary
that was
damaged by fire.
read more
here.



i am honored
to be showing
alongside
lisa,
wendy,
and
many others.

if you live there,
go see the show.
100 birds
for
$100 each.

it's probably
good that
i can't go...
i'd buy
so many birds
including
this one.



my piece is
called
germination...
fire often
brings about
the germination
of
many plants
that lay
dormant
until scorched
by fire.
the germination
of a piece,
of a show,
of a sanctuary.



in
the left corner
is an old
perscription
vial
with seeds
from
a
fire-adapted
plant.
too literal?
maybe,
but
it was the
germination
of the piece.

have a lovely
weekend.

next week,
polaroids
and
a
purse-a-day.

I love it! And I don't think it's too literal at all. I wish I was in the area to see the show.

Hey---I think I know that wallpaper/wrapping paper?! Is that a Johnny item?

I like the seeds inclusion---not everyone will pick up on it.

Wish I could see that exhibit...

I love this piece, it's been wonderful seeing how people interpret the bird theme differently. Such a wonderful thought process and execution.
