A Conundrum, Wrapped in a shift?
So, I found out that a piece I had hoped to enter into the “Fins, Feathers and Fur” show would not be acceptable since it is a nude. I felt pretty clever coming up with an idea that included one of those without being from the animal kingdom (though technically we are from it). I for one, find it appalling that there are galleries out there that won’t accept nudes. We are talking fine art galleries. I am loath to clothe my angel and she has voiced her objections as well. However, I did find an absolutely perfect piece of Shintoism fabric that I created myself a few years back stashed in my studio closet. The trick will be to make it look like it belongs IN the piece without making it so permanent that I can’t undress her after the show.
