IXIA is hosting visual artist and pastry chef Rick Griggs

A statement from Rick: I have many different influences: the study of organic properties, urban landscape, and fragments of the past. All of these are abstracted on the canvas and are random renderings of my subconscious. There may be some preconceived idea about what I am portraying, but the approach is always spontaneous.

Spark Arts gallery space in San Francisco is proud to present Jesse Reyes’ Ofrenda, a exhibition exploring the Indigenous Mexican holiday of Dia De Los Muertos through a 5th generation Mexican-American lens. The show features 14 new paintings by the artist, as well as a multimedia ofrenda installation 

Jesse Reyes was attracted to graffiti at the young age of twelve when he first started carrying a sharpie everywhere he went. The lawlessness, excitement, freedom of expression had captivated him and wouldn’t let go. His work often incorporates graffiti tools like spray paint, mean streaks, and ink mops in addition to more traditional mediums like acrylic and oil.  

In his first solo show, Reyes explores the intersectional dynamics of self-identity and his Mexican-American heritage through a series of colorfully visceral paintings,  four personal identity flags, and an ofrenda to his deceased grandfather/America. Through these the artist explores his own heritage which, as a 5th generation Mexican, is often foreign to himself. Through the Dia De Los Muertos holiday, Reyes explores meaning and intention of traditional ceremony in the context of self-identity shaped by pop culture, politics, and fine art references.
