Green Tara Mermaid

On of my long-term collectors, Eve Chosak recently commissioned me to create a unique Goddess to bring positive changes into her life.  She was already in possession of a four-foot square canvas of Betty Page that she wanted to transform into a Green Tara.  After meditating on the idea for a month I set up a painting at her home and got to work.  Eve was integrally involved in the process with color requests, composition offers, and inspiring me to create the Goddess she needed.  We even used Eve’s hands as models for the Goddesses, and she had a chance to assist a little in the painting process.  Having Eve’s energy in the piece was an important part of the process.

This is what Eve had to say about collecting my work over the last decade:

“Mim is intensely prolific, constantly making art as readily as she lives her life, which is to say with passion and honesty, and without apology. She lives and breathes a work before beginning its physical creation, and when she begins to build something, she does so from trance-like focus, because my sense is that she has already spent hours inhabiting its presence. I have seen her complete large pieces in a short amount of time, working intuitively in this way with a variety of media. She pours herself into a piece and commits fully until she feels it’s finished. The first piece of hers I collected took ten years for its completion, and I was probably drawn to the care she invested in it. She readily listens and conceptualizes another person’s vision and allows the materials to flow into shape of their own accord. The results are majestic. She gives instinctively and continuously, bringing her art to galleries, community spaces and homes. I collect her canvases whenever I can, and I keep every home-made card because each object, whether large or small, is iconic.”

Happy Birthday to ME!

To celebrate the last 43 years of my incarnation and to prepare for the next 43 I decided to have a party with my favorite people and things; great artwork, yummy food, wonderful people and live music.  This show features several of my solo pieces as well as collaborations with Nicolas Caesar and Jombi Superstar.  It was a BLAST!

Inner Landscapes

My Inner Landscapes series was inspired by the diversity of California’s coastline. This series of mixed media works on handmade papers are 11 by 14 inches in a 14 by 20 inch creme colored matt, $60 each  and $10 for shipping and handling.  I find it hard to describe my own work.  Luckily I have some wonderful writer collectors.  This is what Forbidden Light has to say about my artwork:

“Your painting style, to the uninformed, appears to be wildly abstract. However, your voice is imitating the spontaneous generation that occurs in nature. The Rorschach clouds swirling over our heads… The colonies of single-celled beings knitting together the catalyst that sparks our evolution… The unseen chemistry that corrodes everything, including us… It takes an enlightened eye to recognize that your painting style mimics the very nature of time and life.”
