Artwork: "Trapped" : Domestic Violence Awareness

Posted by Sherrie Thai of ShaireProductions.com

Trapped: Domestic Violence Awareness

"Trapped" is an emotional piece for the "Yearning to Breathe Free" 2010 USF Domestic Violence Awareness Art Show.

I tried to capture the internal turmoil that some women are forced to endure. Images that I have seen of this unfortunate issue normally includes battered women and physical scars, but I wanted to address the emotional effects of abuse--sensitively--without the graphic nature of the violence. The hand blocked by the barbed wire, entangled in hair speaks to the helplessness felt by the abuse and occasional societal gender barriers. The subtle color scheme simplifies the content, causing the viewer to focus on the message and details.

Proceeds of the event will go to La Casa De Las Madres, a SF domestic violence shelter.

Inspiration: David La Chapelle's Maybach Campaign

David La Chapelle Maybach Photo

Posted by Sherrie Thai of Shaire Productions.

Inspired by Warhol's Daimler campaign, David La Chapelle has elevated the Maybach luxury car brand to new artistic heights, rather than a mere commercial commodity. David's vision was recognized by Warhol early on (Interview Magazine) and has since continued to grace us with grand, surreal worlds of decadence, lust, and beauty. The photos will become part of the Daimler Art Collection, alongside works by Warhol and Jeff Koons.

To bid, you need to comment with the amount that you would like to bid by logging in/creating an account on Flickr. Bidding starts at $10.00 USD or UK equivalent.

Auction will close Sunday 31th January 2010 at midnight, Pacific Standard Time. The person that has bid the most, wins the print.

The winning bidder has to pay that amount to the Red Cross.

When you do this, you MUST make a screen grab of the donation confirmation page to send to me, the photographer. This is the only way I know that you have paid and can arrange for the print to be sent to you.

I will pay the costs of the print and the postage to the winning bidder.

Many thanks for participating and taking a step to help out.

A little overdue in sharing this, but here are some images from the annual Dickens Christmas Fair in San Francisco, where you could experience Victorian delights, cinnamon-toasted almonds, and steampunk revelry.

Cartoon Mobster Girl Shirt

Posted by Sherrie Thai of Shaire Productions.

"Public Enemies" and Al Capone were the inspiration for this shirt. Women have always been glamorized in the speakeasy era with pearls, perfectly styled curls and gorgeous dresses, but I have always wondered what the era would look like if women had the same power in the mob circuit.
