Definitely a show we are going to see in person if we can, because these stunning nearly 12-foot tall pieces look grand in the new Ooga Booga #2 space in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles. Ooga Booga has always been an epicenter of good art and culture in Chinatown, but this new space, especially with LA-based artist Owens' work in it, looks like it will be a great space for exhibitions in the months to come.

'I aim to investigate the state of alienation through realms of the physical, psycho-social and spiritual human condition. Employing 2D and 3D mediums to transmit mystical experience into matter, my art practice is a means of communicating the subconscious sphere into objects; creating possible portals to ascend beyond known reality.' Amanda Charchian is based in Los Angeles.
