Surrealist Painter Chie Yoshii

The surrealist painter Chie Yoshii is a Los Angeles-based, Japanese-born artist who creates beautiful oil paintings that explore timeless psychological themes with a contrasting mix of techniques and styles.
夢 (DREAMS) will feature 11 new oil paintings and three drawings on paper in Yoshii’s signature surreal female figurative style.

Much of her work is inspired by the relationship between human psychology and mythical archetypes. The enduring themes are woven into surrealities filled with symbols and visual narratives. The enigmatic images embody contradicting elements such as novelty and nostalgia, innocence and sensuality, and strength and fragility, mirroring the complexity of our psyche. more » “Surrealist Painter Chie Yoshii”

Children have often been the protagonists of novels, poems and plays; but they have also been widely represented subjects throughout the history of art.
Over centuries, great artists have created masterpieces that have left an indelible mark and a testament to the condition of the child, from portraits of noble families to the frescoes of children in the fields, from play to poverty, from denied childhood to privilege, from lessons in art and music to the most tiring and humble labor.
From the bas-relief at the Ara Pacis of Augustus in Rome, which represents a child clinging to his father but whose affection is all turned to his mother who caresses him and watches him lovingly, to the Gospel episode of the massacre of the innocents painted by Duccio di Buoninsegna; in the middle ages the figure of the child was replaced by that of Jesus; more » “Unforgettable Childhood by Claudia Giraudo”
