Influences: Marci Washington, Nov. 2013

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 16, 2014
Forget the relentless production of teenage vampire television shows or low budget slasher movies with continuing sequels and remakes. Marci Washington paints the dark arts from a past era, influenced by the ornate beauty and the mysterious worlds of Edward Gorey, L. Frank Baum, and Francisco Goya. Remix these masters of fantasy with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, and you get the work of this Berkeley-based artist.

Paintings by Lisa Adams

Juxtapoz // Monday, May 05, 2014
"Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. THe scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam's emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles."
