Featured Art – “Mosaic Affinity” by Ashwin Narayanan

Mosaic Affinity

Mosaic Affinity
Ink on paper
14″ x 17″

Ashwin Nayaranan is a South Bay  artist who works with ink. His idiosyncratic ink work delves into the subconscious mind where one is engrossed in meditative flow of process, similar to the idea of automatic drawing or “doodling”, where the physical body is disconnected from the mind and the subconscious creates a different connection.

Ashwin’s work explores the idea of technological circuitry and networking, and integrate that with his cultural heritage, resulting to a fastidious work of art.

“Blue Series” by Mary Collins – March Artist reception

Mary Collins’s artist reception in March was welcomed with warm and positive attitude. The “Blue Series” art show at the Paolo Mejia Art Gallery and Design Studio was Mary’s first solo show. Kudos to Marry Collins who made a leap-of-faith to create artwork that she has been wanting to experiment with. The result is her show entitled “Blue Series” where she experimented with color mixture and schemes, and texture and grounds. We thank Mary and her guests for attending the art show in March.
