these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.

my artist website is here.

work work

so i'm finally building myself a website. took me long enough, huh? :)


actually, i built one once but after a few months had passed, i really thought it sucked. i didn't do the best job organizing all the work in to collections and sections and compartments etc etc etc. and i didn't do a whole lot of writing for it either. obviously, i was not in the correct head space for the task at hand. but this time i am and i'm actually kind of excited about it. i mean, the few images of work i've got pinned up over there to the left of this blog really don't give an accurate picture of my practice as a whole. and i absolutely do not expect that anyone should waste their time scrolling through this entire blog trying to discern what my practice is all about. nor should they have to. so i'm organizing all the information, streamlining my online self a bit, and attempting to make things a bit easier for everyone.

and it's really nice to be able to see how the work has progressed through the years. especially the last 2 - 3 years. it's cool seeing my own work broken down in to portfolios. it lets me see the work so much more clearly. and honestly, there's such a wonderful and deep continuity in the work as a whole, spanning several years. i'm actually NOT all over the place! ha! very cool!

there's still a long way to go but i've decided it's best to take it a bit slow and do a good job of it this time around. no rushing. it doesn't need to be finished in a single afternoon. besides, there's still a whole lot that needs to be photographed and i also promised myself i'd clean the house today. ugh. between that and the website and polishing my artist statement and CV, i'd say this day is completely planned out. it'll be good to have it done though right in time for the weekend. a nice clean home to stomp around in while i aggravate myself with art writing and applications and finding the Right Words.

A website, wow. Please let us know where and when once finished.

You seem to be enjoying your work at the moment, Angela. Good for you.

elisabeth, i sure will! thank you! the website is a bit hard for me, very much like a puzzle. so it IS kind of fun. and i know it's a necessary thing for me to have so it feels good to get it underway. :)
