Miso: The Cold ReturnsJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 06 Jan 2010
Los Angeles artist Miso will unveil The Cold Returns, her new series of paintings and sculptures, upstairs in the loft of Corey Helford Gallery the same day that Michael Mararian’s Youth Parade in unveiled.
The sheepies and misos that populate Miso’s The Cold Returns exhibition have weathered the tundra and fjords of their individual phantasmagoria to open a new season, with the promise of a magical experience.
Open to the public, the reception for The Cold Returns takes place on Saturday, January 16, and the show will be on view until February 6, 2010.
About the artist Miso
As a graduate with a BFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, Miso’s work is presented through a variety of mediums including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and etchings.
Her art is often stimulated by her interpretation of the known and her experimentation with the unknown. Fascinated with ecocatastrophe, biology and the science of evolution, Miso has sought to fabricate a world in which strange creatures, born of her making, exist and thrive among us. These homunculi are organic representations of the term that provides her name.
Her work has been shown in Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York, Nucleus Gallery in Los Angeles, Rivet Gallery in Ohio and abroad at Vanilla Gallery in Japan. Miso currently works and resides in Los Angeles, California, and creates fine art photography under her given name, Karen Hsiao. For more information, please visit www.artofmiso.com.
