The sky’s the limit for Mia Pearlman
Clouds are generally photographed, drawn or filmed. Well, the American artist Mia Pearlman has managed to sculpt them, creating a series of site-specific cloudlike paper installations that descend on the room with gale force. Whorls of white paper that climb the walls and dance with the light.
Mia needs movement to express herself. A blue sky is too static to inspire her, she needs a fleeting, unpredictable one. She is in the business of capturing spontaneous movement and light. She draws her swirling cloud patterns from scratch and then starts cutting them out, digging deeper into the architectural dynamics of nature with every cut.
i started this blog as one of many ways of inhancing my art making. but like in so many avenues of my life dyslexia held me back from truly participating in this medium.
so now i say fuck it … this blog was never about show or connecting with others. i dont think anyone will ever read it , so why beat my self up about it.
enough shit is changing in my life that the need to write it down. or blog or develop ideas has becomes paramount for me to get my head around things.
so yeah i have come up with some new ideas for me :
the first is that i quit art for 2 yrs as of now … (25 - 5- 14). i had been trying for so many yrs to keep making art and to feel like a real artist for so long with no saccses. i all i have manged to really do is gain gult. so now i quit!!!!!!
im going to stop thinking i will just have a lil more time next week. or that i just need to work on this for a lil to make money and then go back to art when im done or that i wont be dead tierd at the end of the working week and will be able to make art. its not working for me and so i m going to stop lieing about it. no matter how many ppl tell me its great or how many arts works i sell . i just cant mange to keep it moving. so i give up … im defited.
what i am going to do is set up art space and good qualty materials so that i can make art in my time for me. not art for gallerys with a concept but at that i think feeds me. and i like. im going to start to play again. cos fuck i have done the right thing for so long … im done. its for me now.
i will never ever be ok with the turm hobby when i think of my art practics. thats just bullshit. no hobby cost or demands this much.
however im tried of lieing to myself and feeling gulty for not making enough time or not doing enough to make it !
i am and always be an artist , its in my blood in my thoughts in the way i see life. but now i am going to do this for me as, no grant money no art gallery no exenctry crises or what i feel the world should know or think about.
if in two yrs i find that im in a better place to make art … and do it professionally then i will start again . but from now im taking back my art making , its mine!… and im going to take back this blog and im going to make this mine again too.

I don’t know anything about this artist. There isn’t much in the way of information on either their Flickr page nor their tumbler site. I do know, however, that if Robert Crumb had done botanical illustration, it’d look a lot like this. Organic, textural, creepy, and utterly believable. Like a drippy, misshapen candle that’s been sitting out all day at a yard sale, you know what it’s made of and why it looks so wonky, yet you still want to pick it up and roll it over in your hand and read it’s alien surface.
