Plastic Cups - Tara Donovan - To construct “Untitled (Plastic Cups)” in 2006, at the PaceWildenstein Gallery in New York (USA), which must be freshly built each time it is shown, she stacks millions of transparent plastic cups in a tight, rigorous grid and sculptures the swaying piles into gentle waves that suggest a cross-section of a pixilated landscape. Like much of her work, it can be expanded or contracted to fit the space.
It is my intention to expand the boundaries of the tattoo medium. In the past, tattooing has been looked upon as a trade or craft. I am re-imagining its potential as a fine art form. In the same way that a brush can paint the interior of a house or render a fine oil painting, I see the tattoo machine as a tool that can make art.-AMANDA WACHOB
ABRACADABRA | BLOODLINE TATTOO, A bloodline is a technique that is commonly used when tattooing portraits. It is a non-permanent line made with water. A symbol is a shape that communicates a thought. It is intended that as your body heals the mark, the symbol’s energy is absorbed. Amanda Wachob
Ormond Gigli's iconic photo "Girls in the Windows", New York, 1960. This image makes me giggle. I love the colors and coordination. I feel there's a story behind it that I don't know and I want to do the research to find out. I love research. It makes everything better. ~Ann~ 3/24/2012
