The Precious Rejects Show Launches in 3 Weeks!

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , on September 23, 2011 by lisadiakova

There are 3 weeks left until my art exhibit, The Precious Rejects Show, launches in New York!!!

Of course, like anything worth going to, the action behind-the-scenes is a thunderstorm of ideas, crazy to-do lists, and a lot of what ifs. The cushy nest in my head, otherwise known as “my happy place” is getting smaller and harder to find.

Nonetheless, I’m psyched!! Sure, I’m running on coffee and passion, but that’s what it’s all about. Any work of love demands more than your time. It takes your soul… I say this in my witchiest voice, of course. Wa. ha. ha. ha. ha!!!!!!!

Alright, so maybe I could use a day at the spa, but still, I am really enjoying every bit of the madness. My team is ridiculous!! They are talented, beautiful people who really understand that this show is about reaching creatures from all walks of life. I am a firm believer that works of art should be shared.

My Facebook “LIKE” page will be up soon so keep an eye open and please spread our beautiful disease throughout all corners of the world. Tell your friends. Tell your grandma. Tell your barista.

The Precious Rejects Show comes to New York on October 13th!  :::INSERT DRUMS HERE:::

Returning Art to the Unclean

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , on September 5, 2011 by lisadiakova

I had been curious about Last Rites Gallery for a few weeks. Some of their exhibits caught my eye so I dropped by this weekend to check out Brian M. Viveros’ opening for “Returning Art to the Unclean.”

Last Rites is unlike any art gallery I’ve ever been to. It is part gallery, part tattoo parlor, part bar, and theater. Like so many peculiar places in NY, Last Rites is tucked away inside the belly of a somewhat typical building. As you climb the steps to the third floor and walk further in, you start to feel like you are deep in the forbidden bowels of Disneyworld, where they kill tourists and sacrifice virgins in order to fuel their magical rides.

Overall, Brian Viveros’ opening reception was great fun. I spent the night discussing self-piercings, suspensions, tattoos, and obscure documentaries. The art was gorgeous, gritty, sexy… One of my favorite moments was when I discovered a single eyelash stuck to the painting titled “Unclean.” I’m not sure if this delicate little lash was placed there strategically, but it was cute as a bunny; it really made my night. The crew at Last Rites looked sharp, especially Ms. Genevive Zacconi who was sporting a fitted skirt suit, and a red flower in her hair. Really lovely.
