Love/Hate Los Angeles presents THE FIGURE - AN ANIMATION COMMUNITY ART SHOW
Through JULY 2017
The study of the figure is essential to the art of animation. It’s through these studies that animators hone their skills and translate their observation of the figure into the fluid motion of animation. The intent of this show is to showcase the work behind the work of animation.
The Figure: An Animation Community Art show will showcase various figure studies, as well as fully rendered art centered around the theme of the Figure, by talented artists in the animation community. This show is open to artists from all animation studios and will include figure drawing, watercolor, oil and acrylic painting, ceramics, and sculpture.
Some of the artists featured include: Mark Kirkland, Paul Wee, Cyndi Tang, John Dillon, Su Jen Buchheim, Shane K. Sowell, Sky David Pies, and Jeff Johnson.
Animation Producer, Rebecca Totman, created Love/Hate Los Angeles over 7 years ago in order to construct opportunities for artists to create and showcase their work outside of the traditional gallery system. This will be the 5th art show curated and produced by Love/Hate Los Angeles. Each show has it’s own unique theme which provides a framework for the dynamic and eclectic styles that are presented. These pop-up art shows are always elegant, exclusive, and a little bit magical. The Bees Knees, an old time music ensemble led by retired Simpsons Character Designer Joe Wack, have blessed the opening night of every single Love/Hate Los Angeles show!
