Went on another trip to my second home of New Orleans. A birthday, a wedding, and meeting-up with friends from around the country. So much happened, it is almost silly to blog about it while life gets back into the usual swing here in Cleveland. Although summer wasn’t as bad as I had imagined (and I packed my trusty parasol while sipping cold drinks), I can safely say I’d rather stick to spring, summer, and winter for future visits.

Really happy to say that my essay on medical imaging and art was picked up by the medical humanities journal, Hektoen International.
The Amputee Venus painting is one of the only paintings I chose to keep for myself. But, it will be on view at the renowned Zygote Press (along with a few other paintings from this series) for the Memeography group show opening Friday, June 19th. Curated by Bellamy Printz and Jennifer Finkel. “In a culture where social media and new channels create images that go viral, Memeography looks at contemporary uses of iconography—personal and political–and artists’ identifications with specific objects or concepts as a way to communicate a larger message.”
