Last night, the CHG Circa Gallery¬†in Culver City held the opening for¬†Sylvia Ji’s¬†(interviewed) solo show featuring her paintings inspired by¬†D√≠a de los Muertos. Entitled appropriately Catrina, after the beautiful lady of the dead, the new body of work encompassed a selection of portraiture incorporating much of the imagery and iconography of the holiday. Along with full scale works, there were also smaller closeup pieces of faces as well as some limited edition offerings.
