Opening Reception: Kari-Lise Alexander's 'A Lovelorn Theft' & 'The 20/20 Project'

by Kim Larson

On Saturday September 12, 2015 Modern Eden debuted "A Lovelorn Theft", our debut solo exhibition with Seattle-based artist Kari-Lise AlexanderIn this new series, Alexander’s work is inspired by tales of swan maidens and selkies of Nordic folklore. Gallery patrons were thrilled to meet the artist in person and marvel over the details in her intricate and intriguing oil paintings.

In addition to 'A Lovelorn Theft', we are featuring 'The 20/20 Project' a group show featuring contemporary artists working with a fellow artist to create one unique vision. Collaboration—or joint production by two artists—is a common style among musicians and performance artists. It has not been as popular in the world of art, and especially in modern art. But the strong sense of individualism long possessed by artists of fine art was set aside for this dynamic project.

Both exhibitions are on view through October 3, 2015 at Modern Eden Gallery in San Francisco.

I always knew I wanted to be an artist, and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else. I went to Virginia Commonwealth University and got a BFA in illustration but when I got out of school I realized two things, I wasn’t good enough yet and I had no clue what to do. I then stumbled across the fact that Trader Joe’s grocery stores hired artists and then settled into working for them for almost 15 years. I was doing everything from huge murals to shelf signs. It was a good job and was wonderful place for me to experiment and develop my skills, speed and professionalism, but I always dreamed of my work being in galleries.
