As the Los Angeles weather morphs and heaves from blistering to blustery, it’s the perfect witchy-woman moment to discover artist Tasya van Ree.
Presented by The Curator LA, the Los Angeles-based van Ree will present new mixed-media collage works which feature her photographs combined with painting on paper. Reception for the artist will be held Tuesday, October 20, 555 Norwich Drive, 7 – 9 p.m., in West Hollywood.
Moody mid-October, threatening rain, whispering toward All Souls Day, seems fitting for a viewing with this shape-shifting artist who moves with a cool appraising stare from beneath her trademark Stetsons through celeb portraits, sweeping large-format vistas, enigmatic handwritten script expanding some of her images, and paint-enhanced collages.
She’s been known to travel with a glass gallon jug of water, adding a bit of O’Keeffe-like mystique as she goes.
