... with two yogurt covered raisins in my mouth I write this... ART BASEL came into town, motivated us, stimulated us, captivated us, romanced us, turned us on, slept with us without protection, made us fall in love with it as it kissed us... con Lengua y todo coño and... LEFT. Today I woke up with a sense of "I hope it calls me back".
We wait for Art Basel & everything that's attached to it all year long, as an Artist this is the time of the year where you have the longest creative orgasm. EXHAUSTING but delicious to all your senses.
By far Art Basel 2014 has been the most complete since I first began riding it's wave 10 years ago. I was fortunate enough to be part of 5 exhibits. SCOPE with Miami Independent Thinkers, RED DOT with MAC Fine Arts Curator's Voice Project & LMNT plus Miami Photo Salon in Downtown Miami. Aaaanndd... I had my first Official Live Art Performance. (Yes, First) "The Funerart" at Curator's in Wynwood. I figured Id get my own funeral out of the way so I can move forward with other things.
The high light of this season was selling my beloved "Penny" a love story. a breakup art video dedicated to my wonderful xboyfriend. Interpreted by Penny & an Owl named Aquiles. "Penny" was up at SCOPE with MIT and now will find it's way to her new home in NY.
Memorable friend and moments where made this time around as always. Now as I finish my bowl of yogurt covered raisins and sip on Sake I just hope, Art Basel Calls me in the Morning.
