I am still trying to catch my breathe from the past few months. Back in my Los Angeles home base, I am looking forward to what 2014 will bring. I am ambitiously thinking of some new art projects. Funny when you see your artwork spread out in front of you, it begins to make complete sense.
Anyway, here is a film I made in 2006 for an exhibit on dessert fetishes and the excesses of being American. Performance artist Maria Elena Fernandez is captured on a provocative summer day in Crema.
On my 50th birthday in 2001, all my friends and collaborators were asked to dress in their project-with-me clothes. Maria Elena came in with a cardboard cinema frame in front of her face, that only showed her mouth eating an ice cream in a cone. Loved it!
