Crazy 4 Cult: Say Hi to the Bad Guy

A big thanks to everyone who stopped by at APE!  It was a pleasure getting to meet so many people!

Up next for me is the Gallery 1988 opening for their upcoming exhibit, Crazy 4 Cult: Say Hi to the Bad Guys.

Rarely do you find Asian women in cinema and even more rarely are they such bad-asses.  So for my piece, I decided to focus on O-Ren Ishii from Kill Bill.  O-Ren's sequence has that amazing graphic novel-like background story so I tried to keep my piece graphic as well.  I played with the shape of the mat so it felt like the katana she uses.  I also splattered red watercolor over the background to mimic the abundance of blood throughout the film.  Needless to say my workspace was covered with red paint and it looked like I cut off a finger when I was finished.   Fun times!

If you get a chance, be sure to check out the show opening October 18, 2013 from 7-10pm at Gallery1988 (West).
