Deedee Cheriel’s new paintings, offering explorations of connectedness and spirituality, are part of a current show at KP Projects in Los Angeles. The paintings in “Cosmic Connections,” often featuring human-animal hybrids, display scenes set against nature. Cheriel’s work was last seen on HiFructose.com here.

“This new body of work, ‘Cosmic Connections,’ explores themes of: illusions of separations, ego, humility, forgiveness, truth, passages, connectedness, enlightenment, and new beginnings,” the gallery says. “Although whimsical at times, Cheriel examines profound dichotomies between adversity and catharsis and similarly, love and acceptance. These complexities are inherent to humans’ ability to connect and also accept each other and ourselves. Her iconic imagery is reminiscent of tarot cards, 1920s political art, Alchemist manuals and dreamscapes that evolve into a reflection of self and collective experience.”

The show runs Oct. 6-27 at the gallery. See more works from the show below.

"All people- and nature itself- have distinctive layers," says Pittsburgh based painter Mara Light. Teetering between a classical sense of realism and abstraction, her textured oil paintings aim to explore the layers of ourselves that we show and the others we hide within. Her subject matter is almost always women, whose emotions permeate the surface of her work's repetitive layering, scrapes, tears and drips of turpentine over certain areas, a process she enjoys for its unpredictable nature. For her current series, titled "Beneath the Surface," she sees her artistic explorations as more than a way to add visual interest to her work, but also as a metaphor for her personal experiences.
