A new solo show

Recommended Posts

Charlize

I am scheduled for a show in December at a county library.  A few years past i did a show called "Equal" with a portion of the sales going to benefit the Trevor Project.  For a period now i've set my art to the side and concentrated on working the farm, doing some expansion and chores that simply needed doing along with regular work.  I'm thinking of revisiting that exploration with a few extra pieces.  One being a piece called "trans Hoops" which is made up of large bandsaw blades from our mill painted pink, white and baby blue.  They spin in the wind and have a pretty but obviously hard, cruel edge.  If i do this i'll just be outing myself again in this community.  Oh well..........it's a sharp edge.

 

Hugs,

Congratulations Charlize.  Participating in art can be cathartic.  I used to paint (acrylics) years ago and presented work in several shows.  It sounds like your art is visual as well as movable.  Nice!

Congratulations, the sharp edge is also the "cutting edge".

That's good Charlize :) I hope the interest, and sales, are there!

 

I feel I have got to another corner, specifically with my art. At the moment I sign some of my artwork with male signature, and some with female. I am feeling it's getting to the point of all being female though (I am not out by name to everyone even though they are aware of my femininity). I have yet to sell anything, but recently had work at an exhibition at a local nature reserve.

      An interesting read!   One of the sayings I often use, Jani, is that the difference between a man and a women is that they each inherit a different set of problems.   Tracy

      It looks very peaceful Jani. I love the colours on the trees as well!   Tracy x

      I personally started by being very vocal about my support of LGBT issues. This was during the presidential election and I've been Dem my whole adult life so it wasn't very surprising. I also worked my butt off (literally) losing weight. I prepped my friends by showing them my favorite band, Steam Powered Giraffe, who has a trans female singer. They all reacted with a kind of "that's nice, good for her" attitude so I felt safe telling them. By putting subtle hints into every day life it lets you know how people feel about the topic before you out yourself.

      Hi Arianna!!! I'm glad you introduced yourself! I know what you are going through.....I was such a sullen and broody individual before I finally THREW the curtains OPEN and faced my issues directly. I was a very moody person, and suffered some depression here and there but it turns out it was because I was not living for myself, and I was repressing who I really was. Anyway, fast forward to 38, and this year when I finally looked at myself in the mirror and started making changes. It can be a hard and scary journey though. I have never felt better, happier or more at ease with life than I do now....but the first steps were really scary. I hope only the best for you, Arianna......your doing the right thing! Go GIRL!  Kisses and Hugs,   Sunny Kay

      Hello Amy.  Things certainly sound like they are heading in the right direction for you.  Your GP sounds great too.   Jani

      A very good essay.   Interestingly the comments were not incendiary.  I liked this (partial) reply to one, though it didn't speak to the scouting aspect of the essay.  "While the specifics of moving from male to female and female to male differ, the motivations are essentially the same: they are all about identity, and really have nothing to do with "the grass is greener on the other side." We transsexuals think about this long and hard (because all we hold dear is at-risk), and we realize that when we change, we are gaining the problems of one side whilst losing the problems of the other (and having transgender problems besides!), BUT most of find the new problems worth the joy of being true to ourselves - very very few of us go back."  Hopefully the prior commenter who seemed supporting learned something.     Changing my problems for new ones; thats an action I can understand!   Jani

      Line up someone to assist you with daily activities like shopping, cleaning and the such for the first week or so afterwards.  You'll be tired and busy with "homework".   Jani
