CMSA; I HAVE TAKEN FIRE LATELY REGARDING MY SUPER SATURATED PALETTE ( ; The traditional painting artworld does sometimes find fault with it and associate it with a particularly female, over the top type childlike color aesthetic; something derived more from popular culture than "high" fine art...It is ironic that in a culture where anything can become art (think Damien Hirst), people will persist in judging....american culture of the last 40 years has shaped the way i look at myself and the world around me. By noting wwhat is emphasized (like the bright palette) and what is left out (like her legs!) in my work , one can draw interesting conclusions (both negative and positive)about what was important to the culture that produced me...I think this idea first cropped up, art historically speaking, in the work of andy warhol..
