I grew up in museums and spent the majority of my youth studying to be a fine artist. At the age of twelve, I began skipping school and jumping the train into the city so I could make my way to the Museum of Fine Arts, sketchbook and pencil in hand, and sit completely immersed in a sculpture or painting. Nothing calmed my tortured, Sartre-reading, preteen soul like Monet's Haystacks and Rouen Cathedral series, as I studied the delicacy and depth of light and the ability to create a sense of substance in a shadow. Dirty Girl Construction's next build will be a study and exercise in both as we begin construction later this month, alongside architect John Winston, on the new Obsolete showroom and Slete Art Gallery in Culver City, CA.
Obsolete is currently located at 222 Main Street in Venice, CA. We highly suggest you go there and sit for an hour or two!
