jaime, emily, & nike at the fig house

Ok, another day and a few more artists whose work is hanging at The Fig House for Thursday’s opening! These are the abstract pieces in the group. First Up… the tangly drawings, and bold paintings of San Diego based artist Jaime Derringer:

Love, love, love! Next – colorful canvases covered in bold shapes and striking colors. The work of LA painter, Emily Rickard:

Ah, a lovely compliment to the dark teal walls! And finally, these abstracts are not drawings or paintings. Nope, they’re the colorful, flowing, thread pieces of LA based artist Nike Schroeder:

That first piece is actually an instagram that Emily Henderson took after Nike’s work was installed. GORGEOUS. Ok, three more of our Fig artists coming at you early tomorrow morning {and then I board the plane for LA!!!}

*Note: Not all of the pieces shown here are hanging at Fig… some of them were created especially for the space and haven’t been photographed by the artist yet. Oooh, fresh art!

    Wow! What an incredible opportunity. I have been a fan for a few years, but this is this first time I have ever commented. So let me just be redundant and say, I am jealous of you!
    Love all three of these artists. Can’t wait to see what you show us tomorrow.
    Have a wonderful opening! Okay, I am going to stop gushing now.
