ESQUELETO Oakland hosts XOFINN for the months of April and May 2019
ESQUELETO Oakland is pleased to welcome XOFINN for a solo exhibit of her wild graphic illustrations! Finn's animal portraits inhabit light, dark, and all the shadows in between, while the occasional splash of color flashes through the greyscale. Artful cuts and crops lend an edge to her work creating emphasis and moments of surprise.
From the Artist: Finn's pen and ink work is a details-study in nature's spectrum of a kingdom of animal expressions. It celebrates the minutiae of all species of howls and growls, and translates them into a meditative practice of line, form, and caprice. Her illustrations are inspired by the totemic romance of medieval bestiaries and mythical lore. Finn is an autodidact who learned art as a path to empathy, meticulousness, and universality; she believes that anyone brave, disciplined, and curious can themselves make beautiful things.
Please join us for an opening reception for the artist on Friday, April 5th, from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be provided.
Works on view April 5th - May 31st 2019.
