Preview: Soey Milk "PIDA" @ Hashimoto Contemporary, SF
Hashimoto Contemporary is pleased to present "PIDA", a solo exhibition of new paintings and illustrations by renowned LA-based artist Soey Milk. This month's show explores a lavish world of colorful textiles and beguiling figures, consisting of works ranging from oil paintings on panel to exquisitely rendered graphite drawings on paper. Milk’s attention to detail, color and organic form brings forth a curious state of mind that is both unexplainable and intimate.
Influenced by textiles from around the world, the artist also experiments with various adornments throughout her new works. Lush folds of fabric and vivid strokes of color can be seen cradling her subjects, creating different textural experiences within every piece. Over the past year, Milk has also introduced embedded objects into her paintings, whether by incorporating crushed flower pedals or earth. These tangible elements slowly build around the artist's fascination in every narrative they bring to her unexpected world.
Please join Hashimoto Contemporary for “PIDA”, opening Thursday October 1st with an evening reception from 6pm-10pm where the artist will be in attendance. The exhibition will be on view through Saturday, October 24th.
