Carol Johnson// #I’mFreeRange!
Carol has been trying to run away from home, work and the voices in her head for years.
Kendra Cunningham// Muffins, Money & Manifestations
A wanna be socialite is accused of embezzlement and confined to house arrest. She gives her version of events while commenting on her noisy neighbors. Be careful, her gregarious nature may result in sympathy for the devil.
Christine Stoddard// Art Bitch
Art Bitch is a self-obsessed victim and anti-hero of the contemporary art world. Grant proposals? MFA programs? Hot girl gallery opening IG Lives? She’s a ho for them all! (In a sex-positive way.) Painting may be dead, but Art Bitch’s complaints about “making it” are very much alive. Really, this Solocom thingy is a manifesto. She has to show her parents she’s still trying in order to keep their financial support; like artists in any age, she needs a good patron. How else can she complete her series of sorority crystal sculptures? Prototype to come; still in development. She just needs a new sketchbook, but she hasn’t found the PERFECT one yet. You get it. A digital mood board’s just as good; she just hasn’t decided on a URL yet. She’s putting a poll on Tumblr so check it out.
Danielle Hernandez// Danielle XX (Abridged)
Danielle XX (Abridged) explores the conflict between our sexual side and our inner child. Together let’s examine internalized stories that shape our perspective around relationships, the demonization of identity and the importance of living bravely as we truly are (including all the stupid mistakes we made along the way.) It’s time to address Love disguised as Abuse and Abuse Disguised as Love.
