I chose the title for this piece while thinking about the way everyone seems to want to be famous, even for doing nothing.
My inspiration in creating this piece was a great fashion photo, with children of big stars playing hide and seek. Of course fame first involves seeking an audience and being seen, not hiding. Later, it seems there can be too much Fame.
Carving linoleum blocks is both simple and challenging, as one false move with the sharp carving tools and --there goes the block! This print with added collage elements is one of a kind.
I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, with a lot of freedom and outdoors to run around in. All my grandparents were immigrants so I grew up with an outsider's eyes. I'm interested in making art about life, not so much art about art. Moved to Austin for my BFA at UT -- so much talent there, colleagues pushing their media techniques and working out new processes to capture the best image. A really good environment for Artists but still developing as a place for collectors. Then we had a chance to move to northern Arizona in 2016, and here we are! Can't wait to see how this vast landscape influences Alo images.
