This past weekend, LA-based artist Sylvia Ji opened a new body of work, La Catrina, at Corey Helford's new CHG Circa space in Culver City.

On Saturday, November 3, 2012, CHG Circa (Corey Helford Gallery's new space) will feature La Catrina, Sylvia Ji’s new paintings of sublime Catrina beauty and her fifth solo exhibition with the gallery. Central to the paintings of La Catrina is the specter of La Calavera Catrina, an iconic deity of Mexico’s Day of the Dead celebrations, invoked by Sylvia Ji as a chromatic presence enciphered with allegory. Coinciding with the opening, Ji will release two new prints exclusive to CHG Circa, available at the opening.

'Possessing an artistic voice as unique as the times we live in, Sylvia Ji is at once contemplative, spiritual, enigmatic, and yet whimsically funny. Above all else, it is perhaps beauty that emerges as her defining characteristic, and her art reflects this: an extension of herself; a passionate appreciation of simple aesthetic pleasure fused with intimately complex subject matter.'
