#Summer 

Here's a fun show to stop by if you are in the San Francisco area. Rare Device (now on Divisadero) will be exhibiting instagram photos from several artists, including yours truly. 

"Hailing from such diverse locales as Texas, Germany, Namibia, Nigeria, and Hawaii, all of these photographers now call the Bay Area their home. Each uses Instagram to his or her own ends, but the results across the board are stunning. Ana Kamin’s photos reflect her love for nature and city views; wherever she goes, her iPhone is with her to capture the beautiful facets of the city by the bay and beyond. Chelsea Wong’s photos depict her recent adventure through Southeast Asia."

The participating artists, all at various respective stages of their careers, have been asked to contribute one new work which differs from anything they have done previously. While the format and scale of the exhibition differs greatly from our previous exhibitions,  the invitation to make something different aligns with our missionwhich is inviting artists to exhibit new works which deviate from their typical art practice or discipline."

From the sketchbook: Matching in Mandalay, Tea House. There are so many groups of workers in Myanmar wearing matching outfits. I wanted to take photos but I was too shy. I'll just have to remember it in my thoughts. 

Mar 27, 2014

From the sketchbook: Couple in Myanmar wearing longyis, an airy, traditional skirt worn by both men and women. Very practical for the weather, as it was 104 degrees in Mandalay when I left. 

From the sketchbook: Women in Myanmar with big stuff on their head! True story. I love seeing the different varieties of objects they carry. I've seen everything from fruit to dirty dishes, to groceries and bananas.

Happy end of the year and happy new year! 

My blog has been very quiet for the past couple of months as I have been traveling around Southeast Asia. A month in Vietnam and a month in Cambodia has now brought me into Thailand. I sure miss my mini studio but making art while traveling is pretty good. As soon as I can reach a scanner I will update the blog with sketches from my travels.

I am looking forward to continuing my circle around the world - hopefully making it as far as Europe. To 2014!
