A few days ago I visited jjccc Coronets gallery on Laguna beach where she shows her large, wild, colorfull mostly 2d art but also a few sculptures. It was a truely refreshing experience! I landed in a kind of forecourt, a surrounded part of the beach with excotic trees, sculptures and a large screen streaming MTV… Very short after I had bought a pair of pants which I immediately put on and after strolling the gallery I met jjccc Coronet herself, and she showed me where the texture of my pants came from namely from one of her paintings or that will be one of her drawings.
This snapshot shows us chating in front of this drawing, a colorpensildrawing, so rich it looks like a tapestry. It was so beautiful, I didn’t want to leave. Happily I now walk around with her drawing covering my lower and private parts.
She uses a variety of techniques a part from colorpensil, like collage handmade or digital, and motives like bugs, frogs, animalskeletons and so on, but everything crazy and colorful. Well, actually I didn’t find it that crazy, I think it’s because she obtains almost an «all-over-pattern» composition in her works which gives them some sort of calm.
jjccc Coronet is moving her gallery soon. Anyway it’s always a good thing to search on peoples names, look up their profiles and go for their picks. So no SLurl for you here…
But her website and blog are here: http://jjccc.stumbleupon.com/
