I was fortunate this Friday night to attend the art opening of Continuous + Still, New Work by San Francisco-based artist Amy Vazquez. The show is up through April 20th at the lovely shop/gallery space La Boutique (414 Jackson Street) in San Francisco; stop by for an inspiring eyeful of Vazquez' beautiful, intricate works on paper.

I covet the work of Los Angeles-based multimedia artist Ana Serrano.
Ana Serrano is a first generation Mexican American born in
Los Angeles, California in 1983. Inspired by both of the cultural
contexts in her life, she creates work utilizing a variety of
mediums including drawing, collage, sculpture, and motion.
Her work bears reference to those in low socioeconomic positions,
with particular interest in the customs and beliefs, as well
as the architecture, fashion, and informal economies present
within this segment of society. A current theme explored in her
work is the socio-cultural aspects of drug trafficking, and the
branding and acceptance of the drug lord lifestyle. She is a
recent graduate of Art Center College of Design and currently
resides in Los Angeles, California.
