Jennybird Alcantara

p p Taken from the artist site: My name is Jennybird Alcantara, I am a artist living in San Francisco CA. I received my BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.. The majority of my work is oil paintings on wood but I also create art dolls inspired by my paintings. My work has at its core a narrative; I like to explore the complex interconnectedness of opposites as seen through the prism of myth, fable and fantasy. I use the symbolism of duality to explore the connection of life and death, as well as the relationship between the beauty and cruelness of nature, that of the natural world as well as human and animal nature. The anthropomorphic qualities in my characters show the relationship of the central figure to the world she inhabits. I have always been a daydreamer and get many of my ideas during that state of semi-consciousness. My inspirations come from a wide variety of sources including fairytales and fables, mythology, the flora and fauna of the natural world and freaks of nature, melancholy and classical music, Victorian customs, folk art, costuming, creepy religious statues and paintings, Symbolism, carnivals, trips down memory lane, broken dolls and objects out of place. As well as all the beautiful and sad things that could not exist one without the other, life and death and the veil in between. p

Kime Buzzelli

p p " I make paintings and drawings inspired by fashion, film, music and make believe . I like layering images on heavy papers using watered down paints and markers. I fancy the parts in stories where something unusual happens, or is about to happen. I like filling in the blanks in a scene or deciding what may occur next. I'm attracted to mistakes in text. I heart mysteries and voyeurism. My work space is currently in Echo Park, CA. I like to work at night, listening to records, while eating cold pizza. I studied fashion illustration at Parsons, graduated from O.S.U. with a BFA and BAE. I currently own art/fashion boutique SHOW PONY in L.A. " - Kime Buzzelli
