Aesthete: n. a combination of the athlete and aesthetician. one who lives as art,for art.

I am not Oscar Wilde, art's first aesthete, nor do I believe in the notion of 'art for art's sake', as aesthetes commonly do.


"society is often dismissive of people who are concerned with appearances, but those lacking in an appreciation of beauty are missing out on the point of being alive in the first place. It's important to appreciate life's ornamentation instead of just obsessing over its drudgeries."
-Lesley M.M. Blume

Acrylic and gouache on Rives BFK

Here’s my piece for this year’s “Suggestivism” show, curated by Nathan Spoor and hosted this time by Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. The show opens August 16th, from 8:30-11pm and runs till September 6th.

Since the show is subtitled “Chronology,” I wanted to play around with the idea of a time shift and decided to have a seemingly sun bleached daytime scene bordering a nighttime scene, with the moonflowers from the border in full bloom.

Hope you can make it to the show to see the piece in person along with the incredible work by the other artists! Check out that line-up!

If someone called me pretty, I’d sneer and smear more glitter on my face. I didn’t want to be just pretty — I was wild, crazy and free. I talked about sex, about drinking. When men do that, it’s rock and roll, but when I did it, people assumed I was a train wreck. I played confident but still felt like an outcast.
