Diabolical kitties, grimacing monsters, and nymph-like girls populate Ciou’s busy mixed-media works, which seem to crawl with constant jitters. Ciou’s highly textured, overflowing compositions create the feeling of motion — a result of her painstaking line work. The French artist recently opened her solo show, “Beyond the Rainbow,” at KochxBos Gallery in Amsterdam. The new show features creepy-cute paintings, some of which are ornamented with elaborate frames, as well as hand-painted sculpture editions and a mural. Take a look at some of the work in the show and see the exhibition in person through February 28.
