Contemporary fine art-LA artist Sylvia Ji is a muse here at KK. Back in April she had a show called Haute Epoch at the Corey Helford Art Gallery in California. An alumnus of  The Academy of Arts in San Francisco, she majored in illustration and began painting in 2005. Sylvia expressed her paintings are reflections of  herself. ” She paints her problems, baggage out onto the wood.”  Her inspiration are Golden age illustrators, renaissance art, and artists such as Klimnt. These provocative landscapes of riveting beautiful damsels in distress haunt me. My eyes relish on the details of the distinctively individual, intricately painted skull faces.  Something about a skull painted face over a painting unto itself makes me want to know what lies underneath and it is clear the main character of this story is the same woman, except her hair color always changes. And she is sexually liberating herself at times. I also see myself in them as well. Dixie Rose
