DESCRIPTION

San Francisco-based artist Michelle Blade has made one painting a day for the entirety of 2012. As a daily meditation on her relationship with painting and with the apocalyptic Mayan prophecies surrounding 2012, Blade's work investigates themes of ritual and prophecy, the real and unreal, as well as a universal yearning to connect with the unfamiliar. Blade's solo exhibition Making Light of It features the debut of all 366 apocalypse paintings, alongside new sculptural works, as a triumphant New Year proclamation.
