I had the pleasure of interviewing the illustrious Seonna Hong for issue 17 of Hi Fructose Magazine. Here’s a teaser, but for the whole story, be sure to pick up a copy!

“Seonna Hong is a painter of memories. Her works are reflexive – deeply personal reflections of the artist’s self in relation to the people and things that matter most to her. In an effort toward resolution, Hong selects the moments of meaning that have colored her life as richly as the pigments with which she chooses to adorn the canvas. These are the stories that run the depth of a life, rushing to the surface upon the artist’s summoning, or when the desire to express builds to the point of necessary release. With painted metaphor, Hong renders herself unedited and pure – as a little girl wading through an ocean of moments that extend from the shores of her past into the infinite and unknowable future. It’s amidst this sentimental dreamscape that we meet the artist at her most vulnerable and find solace in the baring of this soul that bears so much resemblance to our own.” – Lainya Magaña, Issue 17 Hi Fructose Magazine

Stumbled across this work by Adam Baz and was immediately drawn to it. I love the composition, the delicate lines, and his appropriate use of rainbows. I’m not sure what he’s up to lately but I hope to see a lot more of him somewhere soon.

Installation by Jesse Hazelip for White Walls Gallery

I couldn’t be more proud of my husband, Jesse Hazelip, for executing such a profoundly beautiful show at White Walls Gallery. The show, entitled “Sentimental Journey”, was a huge success. And I’m not surprised. It speaks to a wide audience of those who love beautiful art as much as art with a message, and those with an aversion to war and who have an understanding of the historical and societal implications specifically of WWII and the imagery he draws inspiration from. “Sentimental Journey” will come down a mere three days from now so I wanted to invite any of you who haven’t had a chance to see the work, to stop by the gallery or view it online here. I’m including a few of my favorite pieces from the show for you to take a look at, after the jump. (more…)

Laugh today cry mañana, 2008, Graphite on paper, 92"x42"

When I was at Miami Art Basel this past December, I stopped by the Western Project room at the Aqua Fair and stumbled into this masterful work on paper by San Antonio, TX born artist Vincent Valdez. Seeing it on your computer screen doesn’t give you a good sense of it’s size and proportion so I’m including a picture of me standing next to the piece which you can check out after the jump. You’ll also want to take a peek at his piece, “Death of the prize fighter”, which follows. (more…)

3 Fuckers

3 Fuckers

I’m about to sound like a namedropper here but, when I was hanging out with James Jean at Miami Art Basel a couple of years ago, I asked him what his favorite art tool was and he replied, “A no. 2 pencil.” The art of David Jien brilliantly utilizes this same famed object to execute some of the most original drawings out there. I don’t know why it surprises me that such an everyday instrument is what Jien uses to create his work. Maybe it’s because I imagine talented artists like him must use magic. I wish my no. 2 pencil could do what his does. Check out more amazing graphite works by Jien and his magical pencil after the jump. (more…)
