's skull sculptures first caught my eye when I saw a completely silver skull with silver flowers wound through the horns. I regret not having a photo of that piece (to say nothing of having the piece itself). Hamilton is the first confirmed artist for the Constantly.Consuming.Culture Art Show. You can check out the Kickstarter for the show HERE
.This is a smaller piece --and one of her only finished ones that hasn't been sold. Her work uses antlers skulls and other pieces of the once animate to create sculptures that make you forget about the what is used to create them. Hamilton makes them new.Like many artists who will be part of the Constantly.Consuming.Culture. Art Show, Hamilton has a "real job." She has a degree in communications from DePaul University and, among many other things, runs www.prettywindycity.com.

Onessimo Fine Art
, PGA Commons 4530 PGA Blvd, Ste 101, Palm Beach Gardens, Florida has new works by Jean DuQuoc
Duquoc is a French artist (from Britanny). His work has its roots in his native region. He captures the soul, the heart, the rocks and the earth of Britanny. The theme of his work often involves the disapearing traditional Breton way of life.
His work is tough to label and fit into a specific genre, school of art. That is usually a good thing isn't it?
First of all do not get on ME for the name of the gallery juxtaposed against these Yoruba pieces. I do not think the Yoruba people are primitive. I am likewise sure the folks at Primitive Gallery do not think that either. It is the name of the gallery, not an editorial comment (I write this after previous messages!)
The piece shown is a Yoruba beaded crown. These were worn by Yoruba kings (sort of like Greece the Yoruba had a number of kings ruling city states….but I studied all that a long time ago so I have no more details for you).
The crowns are covered with two symbols from Yoruba culture—birds and mysterious faces. The faces are a representation of the creator god, Oduduwa and the birds, called Okin, represent women. Apparently the king, by wearing the crown, acknowledges that he cannot rule without the support of god…and women. This particular piece sells for $1995 (on sale from August 1-5).

Ladies at their Leisure
New work by Terri Hallman
is at Onessimo Fine Art
in Palm Beach ( PGA Commons 4530 PGA Blvd, Ste 101 Palm Beach Gardens, FL). Hallman, a native of Wisconsin, is an artist and designer.
Hallman goes to great lengths to get the color "right." She uses dry pigments, in powder form, that she applies to paper. When the colors are what she wants she sprays with clear acrylic. She then applies layers of pigment, using tape and applying pressure. She doesn’t use a brush. Then she scrapes away areas to get to color laid down earlier and removes the tape. Sometimes she applies acrylic mediums using the same masking off and tearing up technique. Sometimes she uses color washes and a mix of oil and dry pigment on top of surfaces. I am sure I am muddling how she does this a bit but you get the idea—it is laborious and exacting.
It varies with the piece. You can find out and see more on Hallman at www.terrihallman.com
has a new hand-painted, cast resin sculpture available. The sculpture is entitled Bee Boy and you can get it via Onessimo Fine Art. Is this outside what we normally write about? Yep. And that is precisely why I am posting this.
Onessimo will have a limited number of these shipped right from the foundry. The cost is $3,350. All told there will only be about 200 of these.For more info go to www.onessimofineart.com
