So I realized that I never got a chance to share with you the work I created for an exhibition I participated in a little bit ago. Yikes! My bad... I can't believe I didn't tell you! Are we not homies?!

at the Hyde Park Art Center. The exhibition was
about artists taking a step back from their everyday studio practice to create new artwork that serves as visual metaphors for the routine of art-making.
Since my medium is predominately photo and video, I created a rockumentary video piece I titled "Becoming Great" showing my art practice as I prepare for an exhibition with

I'm not going to lie, I sort of felt a little silly and narcissistic creating this work, but hey if performative film and photo works that feature me is a part of my practice well then...that's the work.

You will have to let me know what you think of this work, to me the work did work to be a marketing piece for myself, showing a behind the scenes life of an artist.. well at least my art you know. You might think of creating an about video of your own work. I think that would be cool, and if you need help. Holler at your girl!
Until next time, thanks for reading.
