Here I have four new as I call them Portraits on Portraits, 3 of these will be in two different shows, I will have more information as it closer to the shows. Also you can find these on my website under “Drawings”, I consider them drawing with thread, thats basically what embroidery is. 🙂 Anyway enjoy, I’m currently working on finishing up the “Recovery Room” painting of myself as Margot Tenenbaum (again) today, just putting in the background details.

I have completed three handmade books of which are blank, so you can fill them with whatever you want. They are for sale on my etsy store, http://www.etsy.com/shop/JohannaFalzone

I’m really proud of these books, I think they are my best work yet in terms of craft and I am so happy to be able to sell them and finally allow other s to enjoy handmade books. I’ve had a lot of requests to start making them for people to buy, so here they are! There will be more to come!

So my website is finally online for all to see the link is: www.johannafalzone.com

Also I have included some photos from the Motel Installation at the Howard Johnson where I installed thread and stitched Maxi Pads and Tampons in the trash can extending onto the toilet to represent the one thing that connects women together. Select images of my book, “Caroline Carver” for the Natural History of the Senses Installation are on here of which is based on the chapter Synesthesia in the subsection about the Muse of which the main woman in this book served as my muse to create the fantastical narrative that does not technically exist, but does.

So I have been non-stop painting/bookmaking etc. Screenplays yup, a lot.

Anyway so this first Friday is the Downtown Peepholes, mine will be at Bon Ami Confections, so you better be there to peek inside.

So far I am currently working on two paintings and getting ready to shoot four more photos for the last four paintings that go with my latest collection for BFA. I am also working on books for installation other than the peephole which is finished, just needs to be installed. The two books I am currently constructing are for a group installation and a solo one. The group one is a leather bound book that will feature photos I purchased from an antique shop to recreate the main woman’s story, it goes along with the theme of the Muse of which this woman is. The second book is a literature based installation where I have constructed an altered book out of the Bell Jar and viewers will be able to interact with the book by pulling out poems by Plath and myself. This is the second interactive book I have made, its nice to be able to invite the viewer although I still fear sticky dirty hands touching my art.

Other projects I have been working on are figure painting and screenwriting. This is the first time I have ever written screenplays and its so much fun, I knew when I wasn’t really making the A mark in Video Art that I was a “filmmaker” rather than a “video artist” although I consider the two the same thing, but some people do not… Anyway I had a feeling taking screenwriting would open the right doors for what I wanted to do with film, so I’m glad its working out! I’ve been writing about my cyclops’ so its great to give them a greater purpose than just being still images on a page, there is now a story and dialogue for them which expands their meaning farther creating an even more meaningful narrative for them.
