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

Also I am now registered on Nurture Art’s Registry for Artists and Curators which is an artist space and collective based out of Brooklyn, NY. I recommend this to any artist out there, its like submitting to a gallery only a registry of artists. Nurture Art uses this registry to pick artists for exhibitions in their gallery space.

My artist statement for the Marie Antoinette paintings and a picture of the paintings all put together at the show!!!!

The collection of paintings “My Name is: Maria Antoine Josepha Johanna” entails more than the beauty of the famed Marie Antoinette, but a humanized approach to relate her life to my own. Royalty, Public Figures, and Celebrities are commonly placed on a pedestal, dehumanizing them. These people feel emotions, make good and bad decisions; bad things happen to them just like they do to everyone. Using this stigma I inserted my own personal connection with Marie Antoinette in order to humanize her. The collection’s purpose is to give Marie Antoinette a voice, through the process I have also found my own. The painted self-portraits evolved from a series of illustrated drawings depicting Marie Antoinette. From these works I began to take on her persona, manifesting myself as her. My painting’s subjects include sarcastic and sorrowful images and titles about faking happiness, murder, stupidity, sexuality, leisure activities, and sadness. People’s assumptions about Marie Antoinette have created negative stereotypes, many of which I have faced. Through the creation of these narratives I am calling attention to this hurtful behavior.
