Luca Cruzat, “Entangle 1” Horsetail hair, 2016

Check out my latest review posted on The Hite Aegis Review . The artists who exhibit work in Her/Hair an exhibition of female printmakers at the Huff Gallery, part of Spalding University,in Louisville, KY, each use either physical hair within their work, or explore its cultural and social standing thematically. For some this involves personal and intimate expression, for others a way of remembering the past and the importance of family.

Film Projects

Trying, in my free time to take more photos. For a while now i have been interested in exploring the way we view the idea of home–focusing more on the people that make us feel at home, and less on the places. I am trying to show this by creating multiple exposures on a single film strip to demonstrate how places and environments change, and even individuals change, but remain as safety nets for us.
