Just discovered Jennybird Alcantara’s work @jennybirdart [#geekgirl]

This video is from Jennybird Alcantara’s 2014 exhibition at AFA Gallery in New York City. The collection of original works included oil paintings, works on paper and mixed-media dolls.  The exhibition coincided with the Artist’s featured story in Hi- Fructose Magazine’s Vol.29 issue (sold out). Alcantara uses symbolism to explore the connection between life and death, as well as the beauty and cruelness of nature (including landscape, animals and humans). She lives and works in Oakland.

Definitely recommend visiting Jennybird’s website.
