“Strange Fruit” by Miguel Felipe

If Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss), Edvard Munch, and Alphonse Mucha spent the evenign chatting at Hokusai’s garden party, they would probably conjure images like Kierstan Cherry’s acrylic and ink characters. Her characters maintain a surface innocence that belies our uneasy suspicion that all is not quite what it appears to be. (GallerieF64.US)

Cherry will be one of many local emerging artists who will be exhibiting new works—40 in total—at Jones Coffee Roasters with an opening reception Wednesday, September 11th.

The artists were “studying the nature of movement and visual language and interpreting cultural and personal growth.” The result is works of illustration, acrylic and oil paintings, digital photography, silkscreen and mixed media.

Participating artist Robert Yancy tells a story about the human body and soul, depicting birds as a vehicle for understanding them.

“Another artist draws upon remembered, unexplained dreams as they are filtered through time, water and space,” while Miguel Felipe”examines the contrast and juxtaposition of images from the artist’s native Guatemala with images from his current home in Los Angeles.”

Kierstan Cherry’s work “contains interpretations of surrealism and abstractionist art styles and draws inspiration from the works of the Old Masters.”
