Headdress Salon presents our annual Dia de los Muertos inspired art show, November Skulls, featuring work by Heather Jorgensen and Michelle Robertson, on Sunday, November 1, 1pm-5pm, outside of Headdress at 883 Lighthouse Avenue in Monterey. Be sure to wear your face mask. Outdoor social distancing measures will be in place.
Heather Jorgensen, the artist behind Lili Jorge, creates multi-media shadow boxes made with old cigar boxes and recycled material. Inspired by Mexican folk art, each work is a compilation that expresses the delicate balance between life and death. Sizes, themes, and materials vary and each piece is unique.
Photographer Michelle Robertson takes reality and, turning it just a touch, creates illusion. Like Mary Shelley describing a lightning storm, or Charles Baudelaire describing a Catholic mass at night, Michelle captures something magical in a flash. Sometimes haunting, sometimes wonderful, her work is always provocatively inviting one into her world.
