Oil and Acrylic on Linen

Alexis Semtner’s abstract paintings utilize optical illusion to distort the viewers spatial awareness. According to Semtner, her use of visual falsity is used to denote perception and draw attention to how ubiquitous the notion of hallucination is in the human mind. I like the comforting and almost calming colors juxtaposed to the disconcerting Escher-esque environments, I think that the combination works well to create a world of constantly changing perceptions.

I first met Juka Araikawa during my stint at UCLA as a teachers assistant for a drawing class. She was a quiet  girl who had moved across the world to LA to study art. Even though she didn’t say much her work always stood out as some of my favorite in the class.
