Death by Birthday: A festive way to show the grim side
Desire’ Hough’s solo installation, Rotting Piñata, is a birthday party that was eagerly planned but never occurred for unspoken reasons, leaving the viewer with underlying notions of death. The piñata was never hit yet is falling apart, cake never cut but not at all appetizing, balloons at your feet deflating, and gifts left unopened. All combine to create a subtly haunting scene.
Submit your work to Ground Floor Gallery + Studios’ 4th Annual Juried Show! More information is available on the submissions page.

David Willburn‘s art practice combines a history of drawing and craft (fibers) with a love of domestic history and ritual. Taking Things Apart re-presents objects from his own home in a series of highly abstracted mixed media works on fabric. These hybrid media works–involving craft, painting, and drawing–are evidence of Willburn’s interest in employing craft media as a way of examining everyday things while reconsidering social, gender, and cultural convention.
