Caia Koopman: Figments
Distinction Gallery - Escondido, CA
Opening on October 7, Figments is the solo exhibit of painter Caia Koopman, which will show her most recent works. With her background in skate and snowboarding, Koopman’s graphics have graced the products of a number of action sports companies, including Rossignol and Oakley. Her style is considered pop surrealism, and her paintings depict haunting images of female characters surrounded by animals and plants, as well as Mexican folk art-inspired imagery like Dia De Los Muertos sugar skulls. The exhibit will be on view through the month, and you can even attend the opening reception on October 11 from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. to meet the artist herself.
