Marcia Jones’ oldest desire is to know what “secure belonging” feels like, by breaking with her family’s generational cycles, by creating large scale dark charcoal art forms in public performances, in order to share her practice of confronting the triple darkness of space.
Megan Alexandra Miller is from another planet, I’m guessing it’s Jupiter! Her mezzo-soprano tones are as whiskful as are her needs to fiercely shape her love for the arts and culture into the post-modern equivalent of a grand 19th century opera, replete with despair, renewal and the ultimate gift, inspiration!
Michael’s qualifications are years of obsessive and compulsive behavior as a mixed marshal arts warrior, which led him to two broken noses and other damaged bits and pieces. He is now a butt kicking personal trainer!
Common Market founder Blake Barnes delivers on his promise to feed Charlotte’s body & soul everyday, 365, with the time honored blend of delicious ingredients, found object-ivity and reverential grace.
How is that for exquisite!
The highly focused, burning desire of Terpening Wilder Law is to support their clients with empathy and compassion, in order to “Stand up for their clients in situations that other law firms can not or will not handle”. And they’re way more fun to spend your time with than a barrel of monkeys!
Imagine your favorite childhood adventure, to a place you found to be your very own, on a blue sky day…, and the buzzing of bees and sparkling white lines looping way above your head. As the buzzing gets louder two of the white lines are now preceded by dragonflies chasing each other, until a line of bullets perforate the grassy field beside you, and the dragonfly grows to the size of a Messerschmitt 109 fighter plane spiraling out of control and exploding into a ball of flames, as it strikes a ridge of trees separating one field from another, just up the hill from the spot you are standing. At the age of 7, Alf Ward experienced the visual and emotional reality of the battles in the skies over England during World War II, and has now begun to create a series of paintings to depict the carnage of destruction in the pastoral environs near his childhood home.
I am very sensitive to the personal space around highly public individuals. So, when I received the assignment for a cover portrait of Peter Gabriel, my mind whirled with options. A quick trip to the auto parts store sealed it. Peter jumped at the idea of being surrounded with eight flaming-red road flares in mid-town Manhattan rush hour traffic, however, his record company agent flatly denied him this opportunity.
So, as Andy Warhol is famous for telling Keith Haring: “Go to the Subways.” Peter’s A&R guy agreed that the subway idea was much safer… (Ha!) Peter had never been in a NYC subway station, so after he personally negotiated the purchase and administering of “said token” into the turnstile, he was now totally committed to embracing his character of “the man behind bars”—and he loved it…!
