The Light Behind the Sun, an exhibition of paintings by Yuh-Shioh. Inspired by personal visions and concepts from ancient civilizations, Yuh-Shioh creates ethereal compositions that are both deliberate and impulsive.
Her interest in Shamanism and the spiritual realm leads Yuh-Shioh to paint atmospheric landscapes that are summoned from her experiences with nature. She uses large Sumi and Hake brushes to apply diluted acrylic paint to stretched raw canvas. Her confident shapes are painted with intention, while watery edges bleed spontaneously into the natural raw canvas surface.
In the project room the gallery presents Fragile, a selection of tintype photographs by Los Angeles–based artist Matthew Finley. This series of conceptual portraits explores ideas of introversion in contemporary society. Matthew Finley’s work has been published in Fraction Magazine, Shots Magazine, and the journal Plates to Pixels. He won the Juror Award in the Visual Armistice 10th Annual Juried Showcase.
