sincerely I respond

sincerely in response
some where between
uncaught by myths
My work challenges "the woman's place in
society" as well as celebrating her achievements. It is based on my life
as a woman, raising my two daughters alone. My work and family are connected
in a deep way. Perhaps because my own artistic life has been so intertwined
with (sometimes retarded, sometimes advanced by) my life with my two daughters,
I feel that I did not find my true voice as an artist until after my youngest
daughter left home. Soon after she left, I became an active feminist, one
who believes in the social, financial, and political equality of the sexes.
Comics, underground books, paintings, drawings,
prints, stencils and skateboards in the new genre, NeoSurrealism, by emerging
artists Orlando Lacro, Lou Lima, Roxanne Zuniga and others will be featured.
These artists have shown in national alternative publication events such
as Alternative Press Expo (APE) in San Francisco and in Bay Area nonprofit
galleries such as Barbarella's in San Jose.
