Feather. Rebecca Ladds, 2011.
Something made me think of this, and I wanted to share! This is a clay bust I made in grade 11 art class of the one and only Salvador Dali.
I ended up painting my favourite painting of his, ‘The Meditative Rose’ right on top of his face!

So this is what I draw when I wait for busses apparently.
Trying new things.
Rebecca Ladds’ “Soft Anatomy” and Audrey Kawasaki’s “She Entwined”.
Really LOVE them both and I’m glad I had an opportunity to get both.
I wanted to include this on my instillness blog because it makes my heart explode.
For those of you who don’t know, Audrey Kawasaki is my favourite artist so this IS THE BIGGEST COMPLIMENT EVER.
Thank you so much Nancy! <3!
Messy desk! This is me trying to keep this blog active while I have nothing new to post at the moment.
New stuff coming soon!
'Feminine Family Portrait” Rebecca Ladds, 2011.
Ink and newspaper on mylar and pine panel.
Left panel is mum, the small top middle one is my oldest sister, the middle on in the middle is my older sister, and the bottom middle one and the right panel are self portraits.
This is for Form and Structure. I chose to do my final project as an installation. We had to create a relationship between a vertical surface and a horizontal surface. I chose to create shelves, an index kind of of these glass vials and non-funtional lightbulbs. In these vials is dried lavender.
My main idea was that flowers will not grow when not in soil, they are dead in these man-made glass vials. In the same way, our man-made lightbulbs will not be powered by an organic substance, the wood shelf. As the shelves move upwards from the ground the vials get smaller, more constricting and more impractical.
I thought of the idea at 10 30 this morning while buying random things at active surplus, worked on it, had a nap, worked in the woodshop, and just finished it and mounted it on my wall to see how it looked. 10 hours and one final project done in one day, A DAY EARLY.
Yessssss. Art schoolin’ like a champ.
