This week has sounded thrilling, perhaps excessively so, as I’ve managed to catch the kind of cold that comes from inattentive susceptibility - brazenly under-dressing or some other flagrant willingness to play viral host. The abandon is well worth it. Being only in favor of voluptuous disarray, however, + decidedly not of clutter, I’ve compiled a catalog of vévé paintings to date. Hi-res photos + complete information in a neat discrete alternative to scrolling through web pages. Please download at http://www.sendspace.com/file/13pw05 !
An overgrown pure black cat stood determinedly in my path yesterday in the middle of a familiar neighborhood grown over with the uncanny moss of damp light that comes between intermittent rain showers.
Or, that unique composure of being drawn out of sleep by crystalline awareness of a faucet in the darkened bathroom opening and closing with a metal hiss. Nothing there + the room’s not empty.
There’s an edge of hysteria to all the vividly dying foliage that creeps up against the steady barriers of peripheral vision - you could just sink into the ground all soupy proteins at any second, sliding neatly into earthy pores.
It’s been a magical season so far. A dose of ritual immersion on the equinox can’t have hurt, + a certain occasion exactly one month in can’t but sustain the mood …
I’VE BEEN BAD…
Magical week split between prowling multilevel esoteric shops in the most marine recesses of New England + a fortuitous (I swear) full-frontal run-in with Folsom St Fair 2012 … all of which but ornamentation splayed attractively around a Black Mamba centerpiece idol.
The result plus some more prosaic matters is, your generally faithful lady artist has been somewhat absent. No longer, of course - guilt owned + penance paid, I shall resume revelation of the work that has somehow gone on despite (because of?) successive days of rarefied titillation … xx

Here, immoderate glee at the emergence of excessively early Hallowe’en paraphernalia + arcane fixation on consuming the darkest, most subterranean and occult of plants as a staple diet. In the space of a day: empathizing with a growling rubber werewolf that shivers + spits jets of suspect-looking warm water (an intentional function? the display box worryingly failed to elaborate) + going into paroxysms of delight at the discovery of black string beans to accompany purplish-dark kale in a thoroughly eldritch meal, like mutual biting + digestion, of + by the earth itself.
Thrilled by all the inquiries and messages I have been receiving of late, I welcome and indeed encourage yet more, especially from those who might wish to share a glimpse of their own, sympathetically-inclined artworks - ever eager for such communicative stimuli! + more, more to come … xx
Small signs of the approaching dying-off of fall - the cheerful and life-affirming decay of which season can only be likened appropriately in my mind to the intoxicating + horrific stench of low-tide - keep straying into my path, my personal favorite thus far being a great ovoid mass, reaching a height midway to my knee, of bright orange mushrooms on someone’s carefully manicured lawn: an orgiastic eruption or expansion obviously made lividly manifest overnight and already in the throes of fragrant self-digestion after what I can only assume was a brief and furious mass coupling. My delight at such uncouth proliferation knows no bounds…
On which note, I persist in my own creeping occupation of space and matter, a very central feature of which process is enjoying correspondence and inquiries both from those interested in the paintings and garments displayed here (thank you for all your lovely messages!) as well as from those engaged in sympathetic forms of creation - I would love to hear from you + see your work! This witch seeks a more populous coven … xx
