Our country is amazing. From the dirt to the sky the colors that Australia presents are incredible and captured so defiantly by Jo Bertini. It makes her paintings even better when you know exactly what she means to convey. The red dirt, blue skies, sun bleached greenery, aqua oceans.... the list goes on. Go out and see for yourself!

Under the sea
Darling it's better,
Down where it's wetter,
Take it from me.
Up on the shore they work all day,
Out in the sun they slave away,
While we devotin'
Full time to floatin'
Under the Sea...


It really is like a magical world down there. Swimming with the Whale Sharks in W.A. is an experience I will cherish for the rest of my life. To hear more, check out the story this Sunday in The Sunday Times newspaper, Perth.

SK8TER GURL

Probably the ONLY place where egotistical tagging and graffiti is embraced.

WHAT A DRIP?



I am going to be honest, I did not see what this piece looked like when it was finished. I also think this 'dripping ink' technique is not unique to 'KR' but I am proud that Maybelline has finally broadened its horizons and brought some installation art to MBFWA.

Tell me what YOU think!

GIRLS N CARS

Images taken by me. 
TOP; Dani Smith, New York City, BOTTOM; Jessica Gomes, New York City.

Hot right? What can I say, I keep good company. You can see more here. I am currently doing an essay for university analyzing my images and how they relate to sex and sexuality in everyday life. I'll post an excerpt when it's finished. It's all about negotiated gender specifics, liberation, bio power and identity people!
