ART // POR VIDA

acatrina-in-stripes-600.jpg

At the ripe old age of 26, Sylvia Ji open a show title “Por Vida” at the Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. Ji’s latest works of acrylic on wood, depict hauntingly beautiful woman with painted faces resembling those seen in the Mexican holiday, The Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos). With evident sexual provocation mixed with trepidation, represented by the insects and face paint, mixed in with the vibrant colors, it gives the on-looker a sense of an alluring uneasiness. To put it simply, “Yo…this girl can paint!” For some added emphasis you can say “This girl can paayynnt” as not to lose any street credibility when interprating art.
