ihumpbeaches Tamieka Smith shared her near death experience with domestic violence for the project. She discussed the difficulty of leaving and what she had to do to get her life back for herself and for her children. Tamieka was so determined to share her story with us that she flew in to participate. Special thank you to Tamieka!

ihumpbeaches WooOooW WHAT A WRITE-UP!! So thankful Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts Gallery supports my work so whole-heartedly!! #artlife #abstractart #texture #painting #fineart 4w
  •   royaltegrity @ihumpbeaches so talented you are! Great job and utterLy well done! ~Taking a Bow~ 4w
  •   ihumpbeaches ️Got cut off so here's the full write-up. "Chantal Barlow debuts her new series of aluminum paintings this month at GDCA. True to her signature style of biomorphic shapes and natural materials in the Abstract Expressionist tradition, Barlow's paintings give equal value to colors independently of form. This new series adds a visual counterpoint into the equation by exchanging her typical natural wood surface for the understated elegance of brushed aluminum.
    Her organic, textured surfaces are are cured with ocean water. They bring to mind tide pool crustations, as Chantal channels the essence and purity of the sea and all the elements that add up to our visceral experience of the same. Simultaneously, Chantal's compositions can appear planetary... as if we were given through cosmic perspective a glance at the surface of a rare, alien planet of exquisite color and otherworldly beauty.

    Chantal Barlow’s painting “Shoreline”, shown below, will be on display at GDCA through October 31st! — Gloria Delson Contemporary Arts" 4w

ihumpbeaches We have a new portrait up! Dr. CarolAnn Peterson, University of Southern California MSW professor of the school's only domestic violence course, honored us by sharing her story of marital rape. Dr. Peterson is one of the early domestic violence activists and advocates who has helped change laws to make the world safer for victims of domestic violence. Read about her experience and the work she's done to literally save lives! www.UnconventionalApology.com #USC #socialwork #DR #domesticviolence #law #love #woman #strength #trailofexistence #LA #education 4w

ihumpbeaches BIG NEWS!! Unconventional Apology Project HAS BEEN UNANIMOUSLY ENDORSED CITY OF LOS ANGELES COMMISSION ON THE STATUS OF WOMEN as of yesterday!! We went to City Hall to present the project to the Commission and share our vision for the project's future. They loved the project and thanked us for our work a! Now that we are endorsed by the City of Los Angeles, we will have access to a new world of opportunities. This means that we will be able to use the historic Pico House (built in 1870), as our exhibit space in 2015! This new relationship allows for the $4,000 a day fee to use this beautiful facility will be waived! We are still in shock! Thank you to the participants in the project who came and supported us and our friends! Look out for more details as we continue to work with the commission in our new partnership! #LA #trailofexistence #domesticviolence #healing #endorsement #thankful 1mon

ihumpbeaches New portrait! Danyelle Pires shared her experience with sexual assault by way of a romantic interest. What you'll see as we continue to post portraits, is that we are covering a wide range of domestic violence, including as many iterations under the umbrella as we can. Please read Danyelle's story here and understand the intricacies of the experience. www.UnconventionalApology.com #trailofexistence 1mon

ihumpbeaches ️ I was invited to be on a domestic violence summit panel hosted by Good Shepherd Shelter, which is an LA based domestic violence shelter, and the USC School of Social Work. I'll be speaking about my portrait and interview series, Unconventional Apology Project and my team will be filming the event for the shelter, which will be streamed nationally.
It will be on USC's campus at the University Club on October 28 from 9-12pm. This is free and open to the public. Come say hi :) #USC #domesticviolence #womensrights #trailofexistence #dv #LA #socialwork

  •   emberamber Thank You! This concern needs a voice. 2mon
  •   whoiseg Love the project. I personally have not went through domestic violence but I grew up being as young as 5 years old watching my father beat my mom day in and day out all the way up until the day he passed away. Just thinking about it makes my eyes watery, but all in all, if you need anything, or I can help with anything please feel free. 2mon
  •   ihumpbeaches @whoiseg thank you for reaching out. Very generous of you. I'm terribly sorry you and your family experienced domestic violence. It's closer to home than most people think.... This project will uncover that the degree of separation is often times 0. 1mon
