Fecal Face Dot Gallery is getting ready for the opening of Sylvia Ji’s (interviewed) latest exhibition entitled Interwoven. The Los Angeles-based painter had just exhibited at the end of the last year in her home city (covered), and now will continue to explore her Day of the Dead imagery for a showing in San Francisco on July 12th. To further this, she has started expanding and incorporating traditional folk patterns and the look of mexican textiles, leading to some pieces that take things past her typical figurative compositions.

Breeze Block Gallery opened their huge group show Wider than a postcard (previewed) alongside the first solo show in their new gallery 2 space – olive47’s bonita bonita (featured) a couple of weeks back to a packed Portland crowd. Over 400 individual works went into the postcard show with 200 artists providing postcard sized works.

On the back of his Space//Form group exhibition last year (covered), Arrested Motion’s Sven Davis is working with Breeze Block Gallery in Portland again on another huge group event entitled Wider than a postcard. With over 200 artists and 400 individual works, this exhibition looks to be both bigger than the previous event and also smaller at the same time as all of the artworks are postcard sized at 6×4 inches. Each artist is either making work on a found / owned postcard and adapting / adding […]
Last night, the CHG Circa Gallery in Culver City held the opening for Sylvia Ji’s (interviewed) solo show featuring her paintings inspired by Día 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. Photo credit: Peter Svab. Discuss this show here. Discuss Sylvia Ji here.
In celebration of her favorite holiday, Día de los Muertos, Sylvia Ji (interviewed) will be presenting all new works tonight at CHG Circa Gallery. With a return to her familiar “Day of the Dead” imagery including masks, skulls, and religious iconagraphy, the Los Angeles-based artist also returns to a subject that she perhaps feels most passionate about and if so, it shows. The rich and intricate pieces feature a contemplative look at the festival as her characters are caught in mid-pose as they go about remembering and honoring the deceased. Discuss this show here. […]
For those fans of Sylvia Ji (interviewed) out there who particularly liked her “Day of the Dead” imagery, you are in luck. She will be opening a new solo on November 3rd (the Saturday right after the actual Mexican Holiday) at the new CHG Circa Gallery. Presumably, La Catrina will feature paintings from the Los Angeles-based artist centered around the masks, skulls, iconagraphy and other imagery associated with “Dia de los Muertos”.
