Femalien

Self-definition cannot be limited to the confines of mere words. We're all cosmic entities with fleshy veils that conceal our galactic bodies of stars and infinities. We are all beautiful people of the universe who have adopted the cultures of our earthly terrain. Eh, me personally? I'm no one interesting.... just a logophile.

Golden State of Mind by Jenny Sharaf

Jenny Sharaf is a an artist born and raised in Los Angeles, currently living in San Francisco, CA.  Through painting, video, works on paper, and installations, Sharaf explores the mythology of the California girl, the role of the female artist, and the image of the 21st century woman in order to illuminate the evolving generational shifts of feminism and contemporary notions of the gaze.
The depiction of female iconography in her work is layered, something between want, desire, pain, and exhibitionism.  Working between figurative and abstraction, her imagery encompasses trashy reality media, sophisticated starlets, pop culture and abstract skin-referencing forms of bright color.  

While examining the complexity of feminism’s legacy, Sharaf works with images that reflect on this loaded history and explores her niche within a generation of women who are disconnected from that struggle.  As a California blonde herself, she maps a history of blondes in the media and adopts tropes of pop art, abstract expressionist painting and low-brow media.

In Installation of 4200 Strings of Rice Grains bySayaka Ishizuka


The villagers of Inakadate aren’t the only ones getting creative with their rice. Japanese artist Sayaka Ishizuka is showing new work at Pearl Lam Gallery in Shanghai. “Life Threads” is a walk-in installation consisting of, among other things, 4200 handmade strings of rice grains hung from the ceiling. The work, which took 18 months to complete, looks like rain pouring down onto the earth and being collected in old antique bowls and jars. There is a strong sense of life and interconnectedness throughout the entire piece, given how closely rain, rice and life are intertwined with each other, especially in Asian cultures.

Life Threads is on display through August 23, 2014.
