So thrilled to have had this piece up at the shop, shown along with our main show for the month.  The piece is mixed media by artist Briar Rosa
"I work with a variety of mediums to make paintings, sculptures, drawings, and prints. My work has developed into an exploration of the figure and its historical relationship to symbolism. This relationship is used with a balance of aesthetics, historical juxtapositions, and representational symbolism. My work incorporates 90’s pop aesthetics, Southern California locations, and Chicano symbolism. These themes are an investigation of my nostalgia and youth, specifically from the context of the 1980’s and early 1990’s, which were formative years for me. This contemporary interpretation of my personal history is both an attempt to show authenticity within the medium, and one of personal identity." - Briar Rosa
