LA///SYLIVA JI’S LOVELY LADIES OF THE UNDEAD…
LA-based painter SYLVIA JI's morbidly beautiful women are as alluring as they are complex, and when a new army of them went on display at Culver City's COREY HELFORD GALLERY late last week, they were greeted by a throng of adoring fans who fell hard for their noir charms. Titled “Por Vida" the new show of acrylic on wood paintings, many of them large-scale, further explores 26-year-old Ji's fascination with love, death, and fleeting beauty, all colored with heavy doses of symbolic imagery for good measure. A veritable who's-who of the LA art scene turned out to support our girl who sold the gig out in no time at all. HAVE A LOOK:
