In a new show at Superchief Gallery in Los Angeles, painter Bunnie Reiss offers a new body of work under the title “Space Angels.” This collection of acrylic paintings, sculptures, and collages continue the evolution of the artist’s ethereal, vibrant sensibility. Her new sculptures, dubbed “imaginal selves,” are “created as we retreat from the chaos so we can cocoon and dissolve our current circumstances, then come out completely new, all the way down to our gooey cellular form,” a statement says. She was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
“Our souls might just be saved and rise up from land to somewhere in the stars,” Reiss says, in her artist statement for the show. “We could go back to the basics of kindness, compassion, a deeper understanding of the human condition, and reread all the ancient books given to us by Mother Nature.”
This show runs through Dec. 2 at the gallery. See more works below.
