NOW KISS.

English major with bibliophile tendencies, unwittingly pretentious, cisgender and an okay dame, all things considered.

Before you ask, I might have shipped it.

I should be more tired, but I woke up at noon today so…

Series: Self-Evident Truths

from the artist’s statement:

These paintings represent a modern study in dichotomy and perception from a historical context using portraiture as the interpretive engine.

I often use the image of the black woman in unaccustomed/atypical context; derived to create a visual tension between historical fact, misinformation and myth. The viewer is lured into the possible narrative of the depicted figure by her beauty, strength and grace; however immediately enters an intellectual menagerie where they are confounded by the disconnected visual clues. Is she slave or slaveholder? Is she captive or free, is she servant or served? Is she factual or fictional in a historical context? All of these questions and more provide basis for the individual viewers journey of allegorical interpretation.

The images are imbued with cultural and ethnic symbolism that provides insight into the historical context of the painting. Yet, the icons, combined with my personal visual vocabulary, may remain unseen or misread by the “unknowing” eye; the eye that never learned the historic bases for all the possibilities in the lives of these women. In a society that often make instant cultural judgements based on visual cues that are often stereotypical, but not always, I feel offering ethnic imagery that defies common visual library of the modern citizen may challenge each individuals biases and foregone conclusions of their own notions of what race represents in history and therefore in humanity.

The images beg the question: Is “Truth” self-evident? Who’s “Truth”? How does knowledge, experience and perception of one’s “self” determine what is evident? If the view of oneself is skewed is it possible to see another clearly?

i say “fight me” a lot for a girl who is 5”3’ and has a hard time opening some doors because they’re too heavy

True story—-one of the reasons I started school when I was six and not five was because I couldn’t open the doors to my elementary school and once stood outside there for like ten minutes until my mom came out (from talking with a kindergarten teacher about this topic) and was like “nooope, you’re staying home”

My sister was diagnosed with Leaky Gut Syndrome.  Which means no eggs, whey, casin, beef, green beans or garlic. Which translates into being Gluten, Dairy and Egg free (according to her doctor).

Yay for 7+ months of illness finally being solved by food intolerance tests.  And yay for doctors who agree that it’s not in your head and who test for everything!

It’s great to hear that you guys finally have a diagnosis! Good luck to your sister - it’ll be hard transitioning over, but once you’ve done it, it’s pretty easy to get the hang of it!

Thanks to you and jackal for being so helpful with all of this stuff.  It’s been a relief to able to know what all her dietary stuff means, and to be able to help. You both make it sound so easy that it gives her a lot of hope. :)

A good thing that happened today was my conversation with Ann, one of the dorm’s custodian’s. It’s the first time I’ve ever had a conversation with her, but damn she’s pretty rad.
She came up to me (probs because my welcoming brown eyes are all like “tell me your secrets” and I get confided in quite a bit) and told me about her son, who graduated Olaf in 2007, has his PhD and is flying all over the world because he’s becoming an upcoming name in childhood cancer research and he’s determined to win the Nobel Prize. She told me she was amazed and proud of him.

I said what I felt.

"I would be too."

Sometimes it’s nice to have conversations outside of my comfort zone. I’ve missed that.
