Some of you may be familiar with the creepy-cute paintings of Miso– she spent the majority of last year exhibiting under her real name, Karen Hsiao (featured here). To accomodate her variety of styles, Hsiao created her “Miso” namesake, under which she exhibits surrealistic works inspired by biology and the unkown. Her upcoming solo show at La Luz de Jesus, “Cornucopia”, reduces her already tiny paintings to an even smaller scale.
Los Angeles based artists Karen Hsiao and Dan Quintana each evoke complex life themes in their figurative work. They will combine subject matter with “Perverse Foil”, opening August 2nd at Marcas Contemporary Art in Santa Ana. Hsiao, who is also a professional photographer, will be exhibiting original paintings and drawings in collaboration with Quintana, who has created surrealistic works based on her photos. A live demonstration at the opening will give attendees a look of their collaborative process. Take a look as we go behind the scenes after the jump.
