This series for me is a collective reflection on the human condition. Behind the funny hats and painted faces are the anxieties we face in the 21 century – terrorism, global disaster threats like the Swine flu, freedom to choose partners, freedom to accept other people’s choices, the environmental Health of our Spaceship Earth, globalization, multiculturalism and the extinction of identity.
Exquisite Corpse II exhibit Opening reception is next Saturday, April 17th 6:30 – 10:00 PM @ Market Street Gallery: 1554 Market St, Between Van Ness Ave and Franklin in San Francisco.
I feel very fortunate to be part of the great northern California adventure of digital art and film. I had the opportunity to meet and work with some of the most talented people in the digital art industry, the movers and shakers of the contemporary digital art world. Recently I have been thinking more and more of the opportunity we have as artists to influence the visual advancements for the greater good and for social change in the world. I believe change happens one person and one good and one single minded intent at a time. My friend Maria Lee invited me and a few friends from the film and game industry to donate art pieces to a great cause – I was really glad to see my friends rally around and make a difference. Thanks to Maria Lee and all my friends and of course John Lasseter & Pixar who generously organized and hosted the event.
