fish + braids = fishwithbraids

fish + braids = fishwithbraids
the experience of art thrives at the top of the bell curve in a place of speculation (and not consensus), hypotheses (and not conclusions) and belief (not knowledge).
To stay at the top of the bell curve, as Buergel and Noack might say,
the best art must make us not understand,
which corresponds to a state of sustained curiosity that provokes us to change something about ourselves in an effort to understand.

what is in the store

The gallery also carries a number of fun accessories besides the artwork. I will create listings by type
(hats, bags, collectibles, robots)
Most hats are made by me, Uta Brauser. Some bags I make, some are by Don Girardi (New York) or other local designers, or just original designers and artisans I find in my travels and international connections.
I do appreciate original work, design with good humor or a reflection of an artist's principles with integrity and originality.
And I have stood up for making/ manufacturing my designs in Europe or here in the US since 1985, in a Western economy, facing the direct competition from low cost labor imports.
Not many people still represent the old cultures of skilled craft, in America absolutely disappearing, vanishing. Any support of the Handmade in the USA is greatly appreciated and needed..
As an artist I am very grateful to have learned the technical details and skills of various crafts over the years to be less limited in what to create or make.

Hi, I stopped by your place with my son last week looking for prints of non-smoking, breastfeeding on the potty. Did you unearth any?

Let me know when you do.
