Painter painting in our land pictures of only white angels
Painter painting in our time in shadows of yesterday

Painter, if you paint with love, paint me some black angels now
For all good blacks in heaven, painter show us that you care

Hey everyone! I’m sorry that my blog has been lacking in content lately but I promise it is not without good reason. I have been packing up all of my things for the past few days and I leave the state in less than 24 hours.

I’m leaving behind some incredible friends whose presence in my life has been invaluable. I love them so much and wish the best for them. So many bottles of wine, cans of beer, and good laughs have been had in the last few weeks and I am eternally grateful for the relationships I have made here. 

It feels like so many loose ends still need to be tied up, but alas some things are better left untouched. I really like this one guy but haven’t seen the purpose to tell him because I’m leaving and that stings a little bit, but I have so many things awaiting me and I need to focus on that. 

I am leaving the state of Utah forever. In less than 24 hours. I am gone. Out. Going to college. IN NEW YORK. Crazy shit is going down. 

It’s likely that I won’t be updating my blog very much in the next 2-3 months as I’m going to be a cabin counselor over the summer, so feel free to unfollow if a dormant blog isn’t your thing. Thank you so much, followers, for sending me such kind worlds and supporting my art. 

But now I am off. The adventure officially begins. And bigger things are out there. Wish me luck, everyone.

Classical statues dissected by Cao Hui

We already talked about the Chinese artist Cao Hui and his strange organic furnitures (strange organic sculptures by Cao Hui). After giving your home a little touch of museum of horrors, Cao Hui demystifies the statues of classical sculpture by dissecting them, cutting them, to break the separation between organic and inorganic matter, between animate and inanimate object.
