Susan Tibbles and Ann Chamberlin

I have collections of art by these two artists and I realized I had never mentioned here that I collect their work.

The first piece is by Ann Chamberlin. I don't own this but I have a few of her paintings. Mine are sort of crazy seascapes, a couple making love by a beach and getting dressed afterwards, a woman in red lifting her skirt and flashing us, little swimmers floating up and down in the waves at sea, and a parade of cars with people holding Macy's float type of balloons only these are religious icons, Mary, Jesus, and Buddha. I think my pieces are so much cooler than these, I really need to take pictures and put them up somewhere. I love her work, I think it's so whimsical and charming. I love her funny bodied people and her watery landscapes. She's from Texas and won the J. Paul Getty Trust Fund grant in 1999.





Here's a kind of different one. Her people always have this blocky kind of feel and I like them because of this. Cheech Marin and Oliver Stone collect her work. I'm happy about the former and not too sure about the latter.



This is Susan Tibbles' work. I have bought her work from Patricia Correia, who has an awesome gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, but she is currently having a small show at

This is <a href="http://64.227.91.171/artists/tibbles/images/tibbles_mothersmilk.jpg">Susan Tibbles'</a> work. I have bought her work from <a href="http://64.227.91.171/gallery/about_fs.html">Patricia Correia,</a> who has an awesome gallery at Bergamot Station in Santa Monica, but she is currently having a small show at <a href="<a href="http://www.dianenelson.com/0302-maruskashow/tibbles/tibblesshow.htm">The Diane Nelson gallery</a> in Pasadena. I have lots and lots of her assemblage pieces. My favorite is a doll head that rests atop a childs tin oil derrick toy and has wild red metal curls of hair spiking off the top of her head. I also have a few of her pieces in glass bell jars, a delicate little Japanese woman made out of a perfume bottle, another Asian woman made out of a powder box, and ballet pointe shoes studded with painful pins that speaks of beauty in our culture. I have a lot of her tin heart pieces and just, well, some super great art of hers. I have a great piece that was the featured piece in one of her shows, it's called Devil Fish, and it's a doll head with red wings made from a parasol, it's very cool but my friends are afraid of it. I have tea cups and gloves and collage pieces. I think she's amazing. I want to be able to create work like hers.

This one is called Fancy Pussy and I'll just leave that right there for you to ponder.

And this one is Open Sesame.<lj-cut>
