Sylvia Ji at Corey Helford Gallery Circa


This Saturday, November 3, Sylvia Ji will feature "La Catrina," new paintings of the Catrina, synonymous with her name to fame, in her 5th solo with Corey Helford Gallery Circa in Culver City, CA. 

“La Catrina” will exhibit twenty-three paintings, including a series of smaller works. “I’ve tried to incorporate many of the textiles and patterns that evoke the indigenous spirit of Mexico,” says Sylvia. The rich hues and tonalities inlaid with traditional patterns and metallic foil motifs create an exhibition of saturnine beauty, resonant with life.

The opening reception for “La Catrina” takes place Saturday, November 3 at CHG Circa. The reception is open to the public, and the exhibition will be on view through December 1, 2012.

If you're in the Los Angeles area, this is a show you want to see.
