Sylvia Ji comes to London’s StolenSpace Gallery, alongside Miss Van’s solo show, Lovestain. Both shows open October 1st, 2009. I literally CANNOT WAIT! Sylvia Ji is a master of capturing the dark side of the beautiful and the sublime. Macabre ‘Day Of The Dead’ catrinas intermingle with exotic empresses, with a regal elegance. Ji’s imagery is a visual elixir of life and death, combining sacred symbolism with mystical glamour and opulence. Influenced by historical costumery, Ji incorporates Baroque detailing such as luxurious tapestries, ornamental feathers, and gold leafing into her work for a more elaborate and decorative effect. As well as all new paintings on wood panel, this show will also see the release of a limited edition hand pulled screen print by the artist.
