New Image Art Gallery casts the net wide to bring work from New York, California and Brazil to Los Angeles for a group show that highlights a diverse mix of today’s young female artists. With an array of mediums and a variety of unconventional materials, “No Bones About It” serves it up fresh with just a dash of politics and gender thrown in to keep it real. San Francisco’s Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough uses multi-colored tape to create politically-minded commentary and narratives. New York’s Alison Elizabeth Taylor, a recent graduate of Columbia University’s MFA program, creates scenes of surreal life in the Southwest with her contact paper inlays. Taylor’s work deals with suburban gender issues. Caroline Hwang paints her narratives directly on layers of vintage fabric that she sows together and Salee Oh’s playful animals seem straight out of fairy tales. Both Hwang and Oh attended Art Center College of Design and are members of the artist collaboration “The Puddle Jumpers.” Suzannah Sinclair’s rendered, sensual figurative drawings on blocks of wood and paper are complete with multi-colored rainbow swirls that pull from a 70s design sensibility and make one lust for the return of the sexual revolution. The raw street style of Erika Borboa depicts a wry sense of humor, street poetry, and stylized yet simplistic animal imagery. Evah Fan will show nostalgic, clever illustrations. Los Angeles’ Ashley Macomber finely paints delicate, fragile animals in surrealistic environments. Megan Whitmarsh embroiders her canvases with pop imagery that includes small, colorful characters like Martians, rock stars and mushrooms. Sao Paulo’s Nina Pandolfo brings the street art of Brazil with her in figurative illustrations heavily influenced by the mural work she does in South America.

Alena Rudolph

Bay Area artist Alena (Scooter) Rudolph returns to New Image Art with “Tin Can Tourist,” an installation of wall painting with her flat, graphic-style silhouettes of urban and rural landscapes. Bethany Ayres of The Gallery of Urban Art writes, “Alena Rudolph’s newest paintings continue to point towards the nostalgia of rustic Americana through the use of seemingly simplistic formats and materials.” Rudolph was included in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts “Bay Area Now” show in 2002-2003. She has also shown her work at The Luggage Store and Adobe Books in San Francisco.
