Red Shoes – The Shoes!

When Dorothy finds the Red Shoes in “The Wizard of Oz” the course of her adventure dramatically shifts. She now has the key to come full circle to her hearts desire, to return home. But perhaps the power to come home and fulfill her hearts desire was inside Dorothy’s feet from the start, perhaps the shoes were simply a foil for the power already residing deep inside?

Its easy to think that the magic is outside of ourselves, and with the right tool, costume, trinket, or boon our heart’s desire will finally be within reach. The Red Shoes, in my solo show of the same name, represent this mad hunt for personal power.

Here is a peak of the sculptures.

Red Shoes is my Debut One Woman Show

Red Shoes is the first solo show written, produced and performed by local Boulder artist Khiri Lee. Inspired by fairy tales such as “The Devil’s Red Shoes” and “The Wizard of Oz,” this multimedia performance riffs and coalesces into a poetic journey of losing oneself, to finding personal power, to diving deeply into creative freedom. The show magically weaves dance, improvisational theatre, video, poetry, and music, showcasing the wide variety of creative practices Khiri explores in her artistic process. Like a collage, each vignette creates unexpected connections and new thoughts around womanhood, freedom, individuality, fairytales, loss, cultural expectations, and red shoes. Khiri’s work is heavily influenced by her time as an arts educator, belly dancer, and mixed media painter. Learn more about Khiri at khirilee.com or on instagram and twitter @magick_socks. RSVP on Facebook.

Sketchbook Saturdays: Magazine Practice

I don’t know if anyone in the world really cares to see my process as an artist. Well to bad world I’m posting it anyway. 1. in case someone out there finds my various sketches and doodles inspiring or helpful and 2. because I would like to have my skethbooks preserved for posterity in case something terrible happens to them. Some have already fallen prey to spilled cups of tea, water, and sun damage so I’m getting things together quick.

Today I’m sharing some of my practice sketches. ^_^

One of my favorite ways to improve my drawing skills that I haven’t practiced in a long time is to take images from magazines and try to draw them. Doesn’t always turn out great, but it is a quick and easy to take what you see and recreate it. As far as I know still lifes are still the number one way to improve art skills and gain a deeper understanding of how scale and size and shadow work. However we can’t always have a convenient pile of random things to draw in front of us, so hence I turn to magazines. Plus its already 2D, which I realize is cheating but it makes me feel better.
