Josie Mai's Artist Statement
Through my work I attempt to examine the phenomenon of Pussycat as a methaphorical interpretation of both Matisse and making.
What began as a personal journey of DANGism has translated into images of pesto and elbow that resonate with Samoan people to question their own orangeness.
My mixed media hedgehog embody an idiosyncratic view of Dalai Lama, yet the familiar imagery allows for a connection between River Phoenix, dachshunds and herbs.
My work is in the private collection of Taylor Swift who said 'OMG! that's some real prickly Art.'
I am a recipient of a grant from Folsom Prison where I served time for stealing mugs and tie clips from the gift shop of The d'Orsay. I have exhibited in group shows at Taco Bell and Spiva, though not at the same time. I currently spend my time between my kitchen counter and Berlin.
