“She Paints” is a trio of painters: Giovanna Pizzoferrato, Jackie Farkas, & TK Kuk. These artists share a workspace in Downtown L.A. On August 18th, they invite the public to their Open Studios reception. Each artist works in a distinct way through the medium of painting.
Giovanna Pizzoferrato’s paintings and drawings investigate touch and connections. She studies physical objects in search of some understanding of attachments, both mechanical and sentimental.
Jackie works in a raw, gestural mode of abstract painting. Working in the style of many male painters from the mid-century, she reclaims a machismo mode of painting in an attempt to rewrite history.
As a first-generation Korean American, TK Kuk seeks to restore cultural gender imbalances through portraiture. Her subjects are defined in a new set of terms that were once only reserved for and by the patriarchy.
