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.

Self explanatory… some of you might be able to handle this and some may not, its all a matter of being open and personal preference.

All summer I have been reading the very LARGE Sylvia Plath Unabridged Journals, and the book inspired me to paint studio portraits of Plath. This series features only four painted portraits. Here I have posted the first largest and main portrait of Plath, this image was a rare find, but I will give out more details when all the portraits are finished. At first when I approached this the idea was to paint her abstractly and slightly blurry, but I found myself painting more in tune with the photo. The smaller three paintings were drawn out less exact to Plath, so once I start painting I will decide if the the trio will be blurred or will go more towards a realistic side although I hope they will not, I really want to represent the mental hardship that Plath endured during her life in those portraits.

Enjoy the painting and btw, I have mentioned before my lack of patience for painting, I took a 20 minute break to eat lunch and go to the bathroom during the process of this painting. I stood in front of this piece for about five hours or more pretty much all daylight long. Hopefully I can get two of the smaller paintings done in the same amount of time. I don’t like having projects sitting around, I like getting them done, so I don’t have to procrastinate starting and finishing, I like to see the finished product quickly and I like to do my “me time” as in Johanna just wants to read a book, watch TV, work out, and play on the computer time whilst yelling at Pandora and writing angry political rants and deleting them. Sometimes I’ll write poetry, but its been a slow summer for poetry, maybe this has to do with me being a tiny bit happier, but thats okay because when something finally comes out of my brain its pretty harsh words (maybe the review will publish one this year, or maybe I am STILL  too controversial) yes Im very bitter over this, another reason why I love Plath no one ever wanted to publish her.

Now that I have made you read my crap, here is my visual crap, not crap, but its just a Chicago word, blame my family…
