Spread EGO - TJ Norris - GLITTER Painting

TJ Norris, 2010 | 24in x 24 in | glitter on panel

My first ever GLITTER PAINTING.  Abstracted and monochromatic, TJ NORRIS' exhibition called SPREAD EGO inspired my decision to give this medium a try!

One would think someone who involves at least 30 artists to create an image of him for a show about himself would have an enormous ego (which we all do, really).  The point, however, is his discomfort with how he looks.  "An acquired taste, " he says of his appearance.

Participating ARTISTS making portraits of TJ:
Katherine Ace, Rachael Allen, Paul Aponte, Chris Bennett, Jason Berlin, Becca Bernstein, Horia Bobia, G Lewis Clevenger, Palma Corral, Matthew Cosby, Laurie Danial, Nancy Dasenbrock, Sarah Gottesdiener, Matthew Haggett, Ian Henderson, Hector Hernandez, Bobby Jones, Edward Juan, Ann Kendellen, Andrew Klaus, Gabriel Liston, Rae Mahaffey, Brent Marr, Cynthia Mosser, Noah Nakell, Mark Randall, Megan Scheminske, Abi Spring, Sushuma, Darrell Williamson, Carol Yarrow.

My piece is already incorporated into the show. Artists continue to contribute portraits during the show's run through January 2011.
