Seattle based artist Kari-Lise Alexander's beauties have a norse-like quality true to her Scandinavian roots. They get lost in daydreams in her show "Inflorescence", opening Valentine's Day at Distinction gallery in Escondidio, CA.

Like these complicated twists of branches, her girls seek out and embrace eachother for comfort, melancholy in spite of their prettiness.
