Love It Or Leave It

Friend Tanya has vacated her studio in our Folsom St building. She announced her departure several months ago and spent the time leading up to her move going through her large art supply stash and making some hard decisions. As a mixed media artist, she has accumulated much in the way of paper and objects. Her "Love It or Leave It" project entailed her making decisions on the spot by creating a piece of art and sending it off to someone she knew. If nothing came to mind right away, that ephemera got recycled to SCRAP or the blue bin. I received a cool collage in the mail yesterday of a Barbarella-like woman with an arsenal of sharp brushes behind her. Tanya's work delves into feminist story-telling but with no explanation enclosed, I can interpret it freely. Girl Power.
