Skin has an unsettling yet strangely lyrical presence in Handiedan’s work—images of limbs, faces, and torsos often disappear into the yellowed surface of the collage, or spread out and soak into the layers of Handiedan’s images in a way that is physically impossible but surprisingly convincing.

Handiedan’s upcoming solo show, “Translucent Skin” opens at the Phone Booth Gallery in Huntington Beach on December 19th.
