I have not updated in a long time because of my busy day job which runs from August-Early June, so I barely get time to post because I spend all my extra time making work. Anyway, this past July, my work Threaded Together‘s documentation photos were exhibited in the group show Widening the Cycle, which was curated by Jen Lewis. The show was held at Suffolk University in Boston, MA. Jen did an amazing job putting everything together and although I was unable to attend, I was informed it went very well! The exhibition was about social justice surrounding women’s menstruation and reproductive health, a great theme and just absolutely relevant to what we, as women have been working towards in the U.S. to protect our reproductive rights and to eliminate the stigma around women’s bodies.

You can check out the exhibition website, www.wideningthecycle.com and you can buy the book at: http://www.blurb.com/b/6289744-widening-the-cycle-a-menstrual-cycle-reproductive Both hard copies and soft are avaliable.

Also, I have completely redesigned my website, so go check out how pretty it is now that it’s all in HTML5! www.johannafalzone.com

Finally, below are the three latest paintings I have completed in 2015! It’s a slow process, because even though it’s summer, I am still very busy with other obligations. I am going to be shooting reference photos for my next round of paintings which is an entirely new concept. Think Beauty and think Stereotypes. When the first painting is done that will officially reveal the theme, but I will not give away anymore details (surprises are good). I will also be taking new, I guess you could call them publicity photos. Basically just photos of me trying to look cool to display on my website and social media pages. I have an “updated” look (new glasses) and my current image is about a year old, so I need to update it if I’m updating everything else to look new and awesome! 🙂

So I have more new work that I have completed for an upcoming show. I’ve embedded pictures from my Instagram. The show is going to be at the Plum Art Gallery in St.Augustine, FL and the opening reception is September 5th, 5pm-9pm.

Also, I will be smoothing into a new collection of paintings that will be heavily reliant on the theme of textiles, patterns, and fashion. It will be Pop-Culture/Familial influenced with a homage of colors and prints from the 60’s and 70’s. I also have other ideas for paintings that are for a whole other collection, but it’s very far fetched. One of my dreams is to be able to paint my favorite musicians and not from other people’s photography, I would like to do my own photo shoots etc. but this seems a little out there because I don’t know any successful musicians personally. I often think if I approached someone of high musical caliber they might think I am some creep, no I am not, I’m a weird nerdy artist, but you cannot be an artist without being weird and nerdy.

Website has also been updated, go have a look at the new works. www.johannafalzone.com

I have four new paintings up on my website, they are comparison paintings of myself with Andy Warhol, Marilyn Monroe, Kurt Cobain, and Courtney Love. These paintings go alongside the ones with Debbie Harry and Gwen Stefani. There will be 5 more added next week that I am currently working on.

Also, I have completed a 3.5 year long video art piece that recalls my memory of Kurt Cobain’s death. It’s a long story, but here is the video. If you go onto my vimeo page there is an explanation of the video, which I high recommend reading because it really gives you some insight into what this means to me and what all of the imagery represents.

Finally, I have been updating Underexposed, my blog for emerging artists every couple of weeks. Yesterday I posted about Kurt Cobain as a Visual Artist. It’s great, I’m really proud of it, so check it out!!!
