It’s Monday! Can’t waste anymore time sitting in front of the boob tube rotting your brain away watching Jersey Shore reruns!

I first met Sherin Guirguis at USC while giving a talk about B/D. Sherin teaches in the design department so I assumed that she was primarily a graphic designer. Over the years we’ve run into each other here and there but never really visited each others studio. A few months back Sherin stopped by my studio to check out some work. When I went to return the favor I didn’t find stacks of design work but a studio full of both paintings and sculpture that were at once precise and technical while organic and fluid. Here are some shots from the studio visit.

“We’re a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks. We have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. We use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. We wear gorilla masks to focus on the issues rather than our personalities. Dubbing ourselves the conscience of culture, we declare ourselves feminist counterparts to the mostly male tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger. “
