Embry Blue’s Winter & New Spring Update 2014

The Blueness~

Photo 14I had left my blog absent for 4 months! Eeee… I am coming back around to my creations, having the ability to bring new beings from my mind into a 3-d reality is truly my calling in life, and when I don’t do it. I feel as though there is something missing inside me. Because I am such a weirdo, these beings are like little children to me. Another part of my creative passion is through the makeup medium, from its ability to transform one person into another. . o r into a creature as well. . Ok, let’s face it I like species friends . . . Hmm where did I leave off on this blog..Oh, yes – . My first offical doll show in New York City! It was so special for me. I feel very honored to have the support and opportunity to show my work in such a great gallery. Many of my favorite all time artists have passed through this gallery. Loooove them. ❤ ! Elizabeth Mcgrath, Angie Mason, Jenny Bird Alcantara, Kathie Olivias, Genevive Zacconi,GWAR artists… and sooo many more..

How nuts these past 3 years have been for me! As an artist, so transformative. I’ve settled into the idea of putting down my

roots in New York City once and for all. I had moved lastly from the South with my wonderful partner to New York in October worked on my private Halloween makeup clients, had my show, then landed a job at the greatest makeup company I could possibly work for. MAC! I am learning so much with them right now, it’s been such a change of perspective. For someone who’s lived on the fringes of society working with the darkest and creative in New York and California. And now I am covering Beauty! Oh my! Beauty. I feel like a scary boy disguising myself in beauty makeup, it is a challenge. It is completely opening my mind to the lighter and most gentle world of glamour and light. Which I must say I’ve needed a dose of, after all the hardship and heartbreak over the last year. Losing 2 friends to the other side, and 2 friends to life changing crossroads.

I’ve been a dual headed maniac unorganized artist for such a long time, I’ve decided that I would be more mindful and create in a way that could help others and allow people who are interested in my process to view and read my work. – which includes my life and work as it happens.

I have decided to combine my makeup work in special effects, beauty, doll, creature making into one entity. As I am one person. Streamlined – in a way you can see it all crosse over in the development of my work.

I hope you enjoy!

And thank you, for taking the time to read this.

MF Gallery Group Toy Show – Brooklyn Fall 2013

TS13Nearly a month has passed, and so much has yet again transpired. In wonderful ways and very very difficult ways. I have made another journey, from the South to New York again for the fall and winter. With my art and little darlings packed we headed on our way. Another friend of mine has passed away, may he rest in peace James Gleason. I am wishing the best for all the people I know, and may they find what they are looking for to full fill their life.

Halloween happened and I had more work come my way. Special thanks to Johnny Madison, Michael Blase, Rita Wu & Vanessa Marek. For fall this year I was invited to be a part of the Annual MF Gallery Art Show in Brooklyn NY on November 16th 2013. So happy to have these dear little ghost children after all the hard work to be put up on display. Thank you Johnny Madison for all the support, and thank you to all who made it out — My mother!, Michael Blase, Kelly Kotulak, Vanessa & Paul/Matt/mom, Rita Wu & Paul, Deniz Golpinar, His lovely wife, Jonny Aquadora, Peter Arvo, Jon Darling & Bridget Dahl!  The dollies are now available through the gallery here: www.mfgallery.net  & New Website New Galleries Here: embryblue.com
