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 been in some planning stage for the paintings, in Dec. 2013 I quickly painted up the last three paintings for 2013 with were the last three for the Female Protagonists in Film series.  The paintings are, Nice Outfit (Self-Portrait as Elle Woods), Pretty In Pink (Self-Portrait as Andie Walsh), and Loser (Self-Portrait as Josie Geller).

Also, in early January I started a new blog, Underexposed, which is dedicated to featuring newly emerging artists and sometimes feature news about art and art history.

Here are the links to my website and facebook which are updated with the new paintings.

I will be planning out my next character painting, it’s going to be on a smaller canvas, so I’m having trouble picking in my mind, so I’m going to look through my reference photos, not sure why I try to mentally figure things out when I can just go through all my files and make decisions.

So I have finished creating all 100 cyclops’ and the process of scanning them into the computer will now start. I will be turning this into what I call a mini-book because its going to be pocket-sized. My projected goal is to have a first edition of 100 books and a second edition of 200 books, which ever works better because I want to submit these to be sold in a really awesome book store I found in New York, its badass and their logo is pink.

Anyway I finished putting together my new and first real easel with my Dad this week and my projector also came, so it will be put to the test tonight with the first painting of this new collection I am working on. I don’t want to say anything about the work just yet, but I can tell you the theme of which is Female Protagonists in Film that I relate to. It’s really awesome and I have 10 paintings, two of which are the same person, but one is going to a be a smaller study, and these canvases are all square so far, I’m feeling the square lately after doing the Hear, Speak, and See No Evil paintings.

Anyway, we will see how far I get this summer in progression its a weird time, I’m supposed to be driving (ugh) up to Chicago in July????? and then recently my Dad brought home two travel books on Southern California (I’ve begged to go since I could speak, but he never wanted to, I’m very confused, but thats cool), but also there is this possibility of getting a full-time/part-time job and moving, so really traveling only happens if I am completely content somewhere and have the time. So as far as I know, I’m painting and possibly doing interviews and a lot of driving.
