Dancing with myself.

 Blah,blah,blah,some bullshit...
"The decision not to show your work was a complicated one, and it was not up to me, but **** and the owners of the shop decided not to have a solo show of your work because of problems that we had with a couple of previous shows that had graphic sexual content. All of us at the gallery would like to be adults about these things, but it's obvious that a lot of other people outside of here can't be, and that's really unfortunate. We'd love to have you participate in our group shows, and we'd be happy to talk to you more about showing with us if we can find a common ground on that issue."
Granted much of my work is sexual in nature,but then again most of LIFE is sexual nature&for the record this is a Tattoo Shop/Gallery wherein one must be 18+ to ENTER. Clearly all my work is not "Graphic" so I am unsure as to why they didn't even talk to me before rejecting my having a showing on that basis.It's frustrating for me as an artist to be sitting on a huge body of work with NOWHERE (non virtual) to show...So I'll just keep slapping it up here on you my friend,the INTERWEB. Here are some of the twinkly little stars in my Casa de la Artista that I haven't already shared with you here...

  1. Update: While my art was too "Graphic" to be shown my friend Beartrap whom I had talked about doing a joint showing with (they said our style was "too similar") ended up doing one with two other local MALE artists featuring Plenty of sex,drugs&Black Metal. I guess Penis flash is fine as long as it is juxtaposed with violence&gore but rainbows&glitter are NOT if they come from a place of soft pink petals.
