Despite these two galleries being around the corner from my home and work -- my consistent holing up in my studio has made me miss some visual relief from my computer screen.
Mission gallery, Ratio 3, showcases work from Lydia Fong (aka Barry McGee). McGee discusses some of the work influences, and the need to produce this art under the Lydia Fong persona. In particular, he talks about the preciousness of the glossy ink, face drawings that take up one corner of the space. The grouping of their frames appear something like a family tree.
