Shapeshifter by Sylvia Ji at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. Now showing through 12/31/10.
Los Angeles – before you go away for the holidays, make sure you stop by the Corey Helford Gallery and check out Sylvia Ji’s latest exhibition “Shapeshifter.” Her works combine Native American mythology, folklore and motifs including shapeshifting – where a human acquires the ability to alter its physical appearance. This is the second exhibit I’ve seen in person from Sylvia Ji and I really love her work. In addition to the detail, the colors she uses are so great and each portrait has a back story that will definitely take your mind on a journey.
I was already in love with seeing Sylvia Ji’s work and when I headed upstairs, this New Yorker got a great surprise that a new work by one of my favorite artists Joshua Petker was hanging on the wall of the gallery!
“Shapeshifter” by Sylvia Ji runs through December 31, 2010 at the Corey Helford Gallery in Culver City located at 8522 Washington Blvd. Don’t miss it!

Head Wound by Joshua Petker
The other day, I was a guest speaker at Pratt Institute. I spoke about my life, my blog and the art I love. One of the artists I mentioned in my lecture was Joshua Petker and in fact, in my blog post about giving the lecture, one of Petker’s works was up on the projection screen. I’ve received several private messages wanting to know how to obtain works by this artist. Good news! Petker recently participated with 11 other artists at an exhibition at the Bristol Museum in England. In association with the Corey Helford Gallery, The 12 Prints of Bristol are now available in limited editions of 150 (for each print), signed and numbered by the artist. They are selling for a mere $175 and they are sure to sell out quick. In addition to Joshua Petker, the other artists featured in this series are: Luke Chueh, Natalia Fabia, Sas Christian, Buff Monster, Sylvia Ji, Michael Mararian, Ron English, Eric Joyner, Gary Baseman and Shag. Go to the official Corey Helford Gallery site and these prints can be yours!

Las Adelitas by Sylvia Ji now showing at the Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC through August 7, 2010.
Los Angeles based artist Sylvia Ji debuted her latest solo show “Las Adelitas” at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York on July 10, 2010 and I loved it! Sylvia Ji’s art depicts warriors of moral and sexual ambiguity. I felt that I could stare at each painting for hours because as I looked at her work my mind was taken on a journey of darkness beyond the light and back as I imagined the stories these figures would tell if only they could speak. The exhibit gets its name from the female soldiers who fought along side the men in the Mexican Revolution and who were immortalized in folk songs (La Adelita). During the gala opening, I met the artist and she was extremely gracious. See a picture of my encounter with Sylvia Ji as well as a couple more images from this amazing exhibit after the jump. Thanks Sylvia for being really nice and for creating really great art!
“Las Adelitas” by Sylvia Ji runs through August 7, 2010 at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York which is located at 548 West 28th Street, 3rd Floor. Don’t miss it!
