Preview: Christine Wu “Come Home” @ La Luz de Jesus, LA

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 29, 2013
Looking forward to checking out the new body of work from Juxtapoz favorite Christine Wu when she opens Come Home at La Luz de Jesus in Los Angeles on November 1, 2013. Her dreamy, surreal, and often erotic paintings have captured our attention over the past year, and as La Luz de Jesus notes, "Stylistically, her work is multi-layered, with haunting and sexual undertones. She often depicts people in flux, capturing the vulnerability of self discovery and the lingering ghosts of memories best left to the past."
