ps. I’m gassin’ up the B/D jumbo Jet to go to South Africa so we can figure out what the fuck is going on over there. Who’s coming with me?
Born into a long bloodline of creatives, illustrator Treasure Frey’s work of collage/ drawings is certainly something to watch for. Her work reminds me a lot of the awesome animations from Monty Python, except with the intricate combination of beautiful mark-making with varying line weights, loops, and brightly colored shapes, she has made a killer style of her own.
I had first came across Joyce Ho’s creepy and jarring collection of paintings on the Creative Quarterly website. When looking at her strong body of work, I often feel like I have come across a moment of surrender. The people in her predominantly yellow world are usually hunched over, or on the floor. Their eyes, which are dull with little to no sparkle of life, are what haunts me the most.
Taiwanese artist James Jean creates beautiful illustrations and paintings. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Terry Rodgers reflects the time we are living in through his body of work. He touches on topics pertaining to contemporary body politics, isolation, and hope.
Check out Sarah Williamson’s prints and fill up with a sense of dark whimsy, which is what her work has a tendency to do. Incredibly decorative, surreal, and a sprinkle of naivete.
Pearl C. Hsiung creates really awesome Manga inspired cosmic scenes of fantasy worlds with enamel on canvas. Hsiung was born in Taiwan in 1973 and lives and works in Los Angeles. You can catch some of her work on display at the Steve Turner Contemporary art gallery from October 16-November 13, 2010. Check her out!
