The Misinterpretation of the Garden

This past Saturday night a friend and I headed over to the DIYGallery in Los Angeles for the opening of my friend Jule Hermant’s art show. Jule’s a painter and photographer and this show, her first solo art show, debuts her paintings.

The general theme of the show is the mystery and mystique of childhood. Some of the paintings juxtapose images of Alice in Wonderland and Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz against abstract flourishes of design and color. Thought-provoking and bold, Hermant captures universal experiences, sometimes unlocking memories of our own childhood.

One of my favorites is "The Misinterpretation of the Garden" (image shown above).

The show runs through July and if you can I highly recommend checking out this talented artist who’s certainly on the verge of greatness.
