Behind the scenes with zen chicken painting
This gestural chicken is a meditation on a confused state of illness. In response to a recent illness I reached for vermilion, my favorite color, to get in touch with my inner turmoil and to promote healing. After the initial vermilion action painting I went into the drawing with a layer of action graphite and finally action sepia ink. The DaDa eye is the last step, a rubber stamp in archival ink that signifies insight. The three layers of action took me to my current healthy state. Thank you zen chicken for the therapy.
I hope this zen chicken will give you a sense of spirited power in your own strengths and the power of art to heal.
Starbuck and Stovall collaboration for Yoko Ono’s installation at the Museum of Modern Art.
The Museum of Modern Art commissioned Yoko Ono to create a full-page insert in the New York Times. The resulting artwork, Peace Is Power, invited the newspaper’s readers to add to the map of the world to indicate what areas “need peace.” The participants were asked to send their contributions to the artist’s attention at MoMA. A rotating selection of the Peace is Power submissions is updated periodically through November 2017.
Luanne Stovall and Honoria Starbuck submitted a peace/piece to the exhibition. The collaborative work, featuring Starbuck’s Zen Chicken and Stovall’s Hero Ant, was accepted to be part of the rotating exhibition.
I’m so proud to be part of this event!

ART OPENING ON THE SQUARE
Saturday, January 16, 2016
5:00 – 8:00 pm
103 South Main St. Lockhart TX 78644
Hope to see you there, Honoria
The exhibition continues January 16 – March 12, 2016.
Extended to March 20, 2016.
The Flaneuse exhibition is a site-specific dynamic installation, conceived by the artist for the storefront gallery at Spellerberg Projects.
The works in this exhibition are the product of the artist as flaneuse, maneuvering through contemporary life and art history. Starbuck’s inspiration flows from the earliest of mark-making gestures, prehistoric cave painting, through art history to present day practices such as digital painting via tablet computers. The paintings explore color, shape and the interaction of materials, with subjects ranging from observed nature, abstract forms and fashion.
I am honored to have been awarded the title of full Professor at the Art Institute of Austin. This move forward is a satisfying step in my creative path as a teaching artist.
