Neofolk @ La Luz de Jesus

Introducing Anne Faith Nicholls.
Her work, currently on show at La Luz de Jesus gallery, is best described as "Neofolk, a new kind of folk art inspired by the narrative paintings of early colonial American and European folk art and the subconscious roots of Surrealism."

"I like the way folk artists used paintings as a way to chronicle their day to day lives," says Nicholls. "So now, I am doing the same with my experience in Los Angeles. It's about change, relocation, growth, uncertainty, emotion, fear, love and perseverance." An intriguing, local show, and experience.
