Curator’s Statement
Sun-kissed, feminine, strong, and just a little bit sexy—okay—a lot sexy. Maybe it’s the Canadian in me, but I’ve always imagined California girls to be exactly that, and this work proves my theory. ‘California Girls’ is a collection of work by six very talented Los Angeles-based female artists. From bulldogs in bathing suits to large-scale botanicals, these women obviously have their own unique styles, but what ties their work together is confidence—beautiful, bold confidence—whether it’s through scale, color palette, sassy subject matter, or all of the above. Yes, this Canadian girl is completely smitten by these California girls. ~ Danielle Krysa, The Jealous Curator
