The World is Scary
The World is full of Monsters
The World is Beautiful
Welcome. What you have before you is my two year art project. Or I like to think of it as such. God, so much has gone on and changed in two years, flipping through this I am amazed at all that I’ve seen and experienced, all the amazing people that I’ve met and talked to, all the places I’ve been. My sisters and I started this blog in April 2008. We had great plans. We were three crazed sisters in our attic studio designing, drawing writing and painting. Since starting we’ve launched a fashion line, had a part in a few books and had an incredible show of our paintings, dresses and art with some friends. It’s been an amazing and magical ride.
But so much has changed since we started; Alice has all but disappeared, off somewhere writing a novel and, we suspect, a vampire; Elisabeth is in Paris, an apprentice, sewing fantastical dresses and I’ve become, hm, not disillusioned with blogging, more, I feel I’m saying more with my art … words have begun to fail me. In fact, aside from the Questionnaires which I am terribly proud of, my two years of writing cannot match one single issue, in terms of content, some of the more fascinating glossy magazines like Lula, Pop, An Other or Corduroy. Who am I kidding? I’m a painter, I live in a world of stripy stockings and ookpiks and penguins. I never go out unless forced, I go crazy in crowds, I never pick up the phone, in fact I even don’t own a cell phone. I am forever misquoting Shakespeare.
So here I am, Sarah Pomegranate, whatever I am, lets say artist. And as a person who speaks better visually, who needs to wave her hands about, I thought I would move to a gallery page format (I will add the link once I have it) and say this chapter is finished. You know, we get so bogged down, there is just so much noise, I love this blog and am proud of it, and it will always be here, but this is the next step, I’m jumping back in to the mirror.
This was our two year art project and you, gentle readers, were a wonderful and magical part of it.
Lastly, as a kind of aside, we are struck by all the deaths so close. Just this month alone, our dear decadent friend Sebastian Horsley and the very wonderful Tracey Wright and what of the macabre and ill-timed death of Tobias Wong? And what of Mr. McQueen or the luminous and magical Daul Kim? If this keeps up the world will truly just be filled with monsters (and YouTube sensations) Please, everyone, take care, stay with us for the art, stay with us for the anarchy, there’s still so much to do, and still so much to clean up. Okay, on to the next sensation. On to art.
In the mean time!
Scary/Monster/Beautiful – The Catalogue
The book, a spread of which you see presented here, and in the hands of our stunningly lovely model Crystal Wan above is a most gorgeous, glossy paper, hard cover catalogue of the Scary/Monster/Beautiful show, it to me is the period at the end of this grand art experiment. It is so beautiful and I am so proud of it. The first 25 copies will come with a signed original print of a new work by me, plus a CD featuring the AudioGuide from the show and three short films, plus a handmade ookpik keychain!
