I, like no other individual, like no other political party, like no other self proclaimed authority will ever permanently shape society. We are society. We may individually or collectively influence it though. How we emerge from our current crisis or the next one is still a guess. I love my freedom and liberty, it allows me to grow on my own terms and through my own choices. What I did notice, as did many, is that most people were easily divided and much of the blame was on the corruption prevalent in all government globally. So, when we emerge from this crisis, do we want to influence change or just accept the continued corruption? I believe we have windows of opportunity and I can sit back and await that window closing or use my influence, my love, my peace, to promote a “better more caring society.” So, I must.  —Nigel Mitchell

Give In To The Idea, 24 x 36 inches, Montana spray paint on canvas $350 Venmo: @LukeSaenz24

Luke Saenz: As a child, I dug holes. A corridor filled with wonder & amusement. As a young human, I learned about myself and art from my amazing mentor ( anti-Terri-fucking-Lloyd). 

What do we say to the establishment? Fuck you.

Fun Fact: Luke cracked his head open one night, partying with his pals. Ended up getting staples to hold it all together. I insisted he send me a photo of it so I could share it on myspace.

Nina says: When I was a toddler just having started to walk my parents always had me in a leather harness with a leather leash until I was about 4  ….. wonder if that’s where my fondness for B & D comes from.

Painting With My Left Hand

Art, Painting With My Left Hand

I’m taking a break from my usual creative meanderings. Got inspired by a conversation with a mentor of mine. The original idea was to have a written conversation between my self as a child and my self as the parent I wish to have had.

The child would write to the parent using the less dominant hand and the parent would obviously respond writing with the dominant hand.

And in true Terri fashion, I grabbed the idea and made it visual. Maybe this changes the original intent of the exercise, I don’t know. What I do know is that I’m having a great time getting out of my way, not requiring artistic excellence, and processing the world both inside and outside of me.

The fun part is when my right hand wants to come in and make a correction. I have to tell it to trust that the child is doing it right, saying it right. By right, I mean authentically.

Below is what I have done to date. I’m sure there will be more since I am enjoying the process and work immensely. Not to mention that I really like being in the back yard under the tent. It’s as if I have an actual studio space.

The paintings featured here are all acrylic on paper, 18 x 24″
