Love the work of Anna Sofia Amezcua from Eureka, California. Her personality and art is vibrant and full of life, insight. The four pieces we have in store at the moment light up the space in a most unusual and delightful way. As much as we want them to sell we also want them to stay! Her art pillows feature fragments of her art printed on fabric with a look and feel that is hard to resist. We have just two left but will be ordering more soon.
My favorite painting featured behind our display is called the Origin and Demise. The colors are out of this world.
"Through my paintings I’m interested in conveying and evoking what it feels like to be alive- deep emotionality and the complexities of lived, moment to moment existence. I want to convey physicality and felt experience through visual rather than literal means. I avoid any specific narrative. I hope instead to trigger varied and individual responses- memories, experiences, thoughts, feelings, desires and sensations- in each viewer, and perhaps even with each time viewed.
In my most recent work I explore powerful, explosive femininity and it’s role in this fraught moment in time where it seems that our masculine-driven actions as a human race have brought us to the precipice. I am struck by the fact that in my lifetime we have doubled our human population as we have simultaneously halved the vertebrate population. These forces are mythic in proportion and also very real. In myself, in my work, in the world, I seek a more balanced expression of feminine and masculine, intuition and intellect, and a validation of the whole." Anna Sofia Amezcua
