Since becoming a mother, artist Deedee Cheriel has considered how to bring more positivity into the world with her art. Her upcoming exhibition at KP Projects/MKG in Los Angeles, “Natural Resource”, combines her folk art and spiritual influences with new experiences of family life. In theme, the exhibit seems to pick up where she left off with her previous spiritually inspired show, “In Search for More Than Another Shiny Object”. Covered here, those paintings explored the enlightenment of meditation and prayer. Her new series of mixed media works expands on this to include temple imagery and mythological characters from the artist’s native India.
