This is a new work in progress piece that i made at an Adrian Arleo workshop at Bennington College. Its kind of a continuation of the plants/flowers theme I had from my senior work, but I’m taking it into a different direction. What that is exactly, I’m still trying to figure out myself.
It was SO wonderful to meet and work with Adrian Arleo and now I’m excited to fire this piece and make new work. I think 2014 is going to be a good year!!
Sorry the photos are all weird. I took them with my phone at different times so the lighting is all weird… but when its finished I will have nice photos of it.

Today’s spotlight goes to fairly new artist Megan Mitchell, who somehow depicts different types of decay and human insecurities in the most creative and interestingly beautiful ways.
