The Five Months Gallery opening of Marvelous Strange was a resounding success!

We have an entire event series for you to come check out. Go to our page to see events and purchase tickets.

I'm very excited to announce I'm co-curating the Marvelous Strange art show in San Francisco with Annetta Black of Odd Salon.

The Marvelous Strange gallery show is a month long exploration of curiosities and wonders of the natural world and the artistic mind. The inspiration comes from the Wunderkammers, or Curiosity Collections, of Renaissance Europe.

The show is at the 5 Months Gallery: 989 Mission St., San Francisco.
The opening is Friday, March 4th, 7-11pm.

My co-curator and I are both building large, immersive installations. Mine is a speculative fiction piece in which a specimen from a made-up family of organisms, the Mirabilidae or WunderKreatures (as they are colloquially called) is put on display. This is a mixed-media sculptural and assemblage piece with supplemental writings and diagrams by the artist and other literary collaborators.

We will feature ten other artists that explore their own interpretation of a curiosity collection; focusing on the inner and the outer world.

View the Opening Event and the gallery show's Page on Facebook.

Requested birthday card for a friend of a friend. Fun speed-drawing (I draw fast when I'm doing it for free). Much needed break before beginning another couple of giant projects.

Odd Salon Book Plate by Corviid
Odd Salon Book Plate
Book plate created for Odd Salon:

"Expert talks on odd topics; odd talks on everything else.

Odd Salon is an evening series of cocktail hour lectures based in San Francisco, featuring short talks illuminating extraordinary and unusual chapters from history, science, art, and adventure.
We invite experts and amateurs alike to have a drink with us and share inspiring and strange tales so we can all learn something new.
Twice monthly at DNA Lounge."

Book plate includes medieval book curse, and Harvey the Wolpertinger (Odd Salon's mascot) guarding a treasure trove of books. Lots of other symbolic hidden gems in there too, like the microphone we use, a "book worm" (silverfish), and a sextant (Odd Saloners love their ships).

Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
Corviid began working as a self-taught artist in the Bay Area in 2006 after obtaining degrees in Philosophy and Ecology & Evolutionary Biology in Tucson, Arizona. If one had to sum up her artistic style, one might call it "Surreal Macabre." Her works contain elements of anatomy, natural history, the macabre, sacred and symbolic geometry, architecture and ornamentation. Because of a life-long interest and scholarly background in philosophy, every work is given a strong philosophical undertone. Through her art, she touches on issues of metaphysics, existentialism, death, mathematical archetypes, duality (the fact and the illusion), emotion, and our relationship as humans to other organisms, nature, and the universe. Similarly with a fascination and background in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, her work is influenced by natural forms and scientific illustrative styles throughout history. She works in a wide variety of mediums; tending to move forward into uncharted territory, collecting mediums and techniques as she goes and combining them in novel ways in each new work.

In addition to fine art, Corviid creates original and unique designs for album covers, tattoos, clothing lines, and stage productions. She has a line of jewelry as well as couture costuming for dance performance artists. She is the Dance Director and Choreographer for two troupes: her own creation, Ego Umbra, which combines her own unique dance fusion of bellydance, contemporary, and hip-hop with metal music; and CoRE, a ritual suspension troupe. She is a soloist performer, dance teacher, and collaborator with many other dance and performance groups in a variety of styles. She is a classically trained musician with a diploma in piano performance, and she also does sculpture, photography and writing. During the summers she teaches illustration, painting and fashion design to kids and is currently working on program-wide curriculum development in these art courses. Her hobbies also include sleeping occasionally, though she is thinking of giving that up.
